Abbotts Ann VDS

The Village Design Statement for the Parish of Abbotts Ann was adopted by the Council as Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) in April 2000.

It provides a description of the natural and man-made features of the village of Abbotts Ann that are regarded by the members of the community as 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 village. It should thus contribute positively to protecting and enhancing the special nature and qualities of the community that is Abbotts Ann today.

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