Child Okeford Village Design Statement

The Child Okeford Village Design Statement (VDS) was prepared by a team of local people working together with the district council. It was adopted as a supplementary planning document (SPD) on 30 November 2007.

The VDS is supplementary to the existing Local Plan and, as an SPD, forms part of our Local Development Framework (LDF).

The VDS describes the character of the village and its landscape setting. It also sets out a number of guidelines for future building and development (Section 8) and sets out a series of recommendations (Section 10), which need to be taken into account when decisions are made on planning applications affecting the village.
