Village design statement
Village Design Statements (VDS) are prepared by local people in order to guide new development in their villages. If approved by the local council design statements are adopted as Informal Planning Guidance and used in assessing applications for development and other changes.
A VDS is an expression and description of what the local community believes to be the factors and features that make their particular village or town unique. It uses those factors/features to outline a series of planning and design guidelines which can be used in early discussions with developers and designers to help them design in a way that responds to and enhances those valued features.
I was tasked with creating the layout of the document and organising collected photos into a presentable format.
