Village Design Statement (VDS)

The VDS for Selborne identifies the distinctive character of the village and its buildings in terms of size, shape, proportion, scale and materials.

It provides guidance for would-be developers on the local characteristics and qualities that residents value in the village and its surroundings. People applying for planning permission must show that they have complied with this guidance or risk being refused planning permission.

Please read the updated VDS on this website or email to John Liddle (JSL7@btinternet.com). Thank you.

Please  note that it is a draft document which is out for consultation, and it has to go through due process before it can become part of the planning process.
