The Pentons VDS

This Village Design Statement was adopted by the Council as Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) in April 2000.

It draws attention to what is special about the Pentons (Penton Mewsey and Penton Grafton) and to the features which give it a unique character. Its aims are to give the residents a say in the future of their village, to offer guidelines on conserving its particular qualities and to contribute towards the improvement of rural design in general.

This document forms part of the basis for decisions on land use planning affecting the area.
