Village Design Statement

The Woodham Walter Village Design Statement (VDS) provides guidance to householders, designers and developers on design acceptable to the community. It has been developed by the residents of the village to help protect important or historic buildings, open spaces and local character and assist the Parish Council and District Council in determining planning applications in line with community views.
