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.
The VDS is now in its final stages of preparation with a final version to be available for consultation in February/ March 2022 and hopefully adoption later this spring.
