Consultation on Buriton Village Design Statement

April 5, 2017

Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 Regulation 12, 13 and 35 – Consultation Statement regarding the adoption of a Supplementary Planning Document.

Village Design Statements (VDS) are prepared by local communities. They describe the character of the landscape and built environment of their parish and include guidelines to help ensure that this character is conserved and enhanced in any new development in the area.

Buriton Parish Council have submitted their VDS to the South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA) to be adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document. The SDNPA must publish the draft VDS for a minimum of 6 weeks and invite representations from any interested party. Following the public consultation period SDNPA’s Planning Committee will consider any representations received and decide whether it is appropriate for the Buriton VDS to be adopted by the SDNPA as a Supplementary Planning Document.

The document will, when adopted, provide further detail to policy CP29 (Design) of the East Hampshire District Local Plan: Joint Core Strategy.
