 The Parish Design Statement 



The Design Statement describes Whilton parish as it is today and highlights the qualities valued by its residents.  It was produced by a group of parishioners on behalf of the Parish Council, so that local knowledge, views and ideas may contribute to improving the quality of our environment.  Consultation with the community and local groups occurred during preparation of the Statement.

Its purpose is to ensure that our local distinctiveness and character is taken into consideration when local planning decisions are being taken and is therefore addressed to:

  • Planners, developers, builders, architects, designers, engineers
  • Statutory bodies and public authorities
  • Householders and local businesses
  • Local community groups

The Design Statement was adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document by the then Daventry District Council at Full Council on 15 May 2008.
