Village Design Statements

Village Design Statements

Village Design Statements provide more detailed design guidance for a parish to supplement Daventry District Council's planning policies. They are prepared by Parish Councils, and following consultation they are adopted by the Council as Supplementary Planning Documents.

Guidance for Parish Councils

The Council has produced two guidance notes for Parish Councils interested in preparing a village design statement. The first is a general guide which explains what a VDS is, what it covers and sets out the stages in its production. The Council has produced a separate guidance note which incorporates advice on biodiversity and heritage issues which is based on standard advice issued by Natural England, The Wildlife Trust and Historic England. The two guidance notes can be downloaded below:


Consultations

Drayton Park Design Statement

The consultation on the draft Drayton Park Design Statement has closed. The next stage will be for the Council to consider representations made to the two formal consultations and to consider any changes.
