Vernham Dean VDS

This VDS was formally adopted by Test Valley Borough Council as Supplementary Planning Guidance in January 2003.

It provides a description of the natural and man-made features of the villages and hamlets that make up the Parish of Vernhams Dean, which include part of Upton, Littledown, Vernham Street, Vernham Row, Henley and Vernham Dean.

The members of the community regard the features of the Parish to be particularly distinctive. The document provides a guide to ensure that future development and change is managed to respect and preserve the character and distinctiveness of the Parish. It should thus contribute positively to protecting and enhancing the special nature and qualities of the community that is Vernhams Dean Parish today.
