Stockbridge VDS SPD

This Village Design Statement for the Parish of Stockbridge was adopted by the Council as Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) on 23rd April 2003, following a recommendation from the Executive Committee of 26th March 2003.

The VDS draws attention to what is special about Stockbridge and to the features that give it a unique character. The aim is to give residents a say in the future of their village, to offer guidelines on conserving its particular qualities and addressing any current concerns, 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.
