Village Design Statement

A detailed description of the village as it is today and highlights the qualities valued by its parishioners. It defines its unique character and the important features of its design and history.  It has been written by the parishioners so that local knowledge, informed views and ideas will contribute to the village’s future growth, development and environment. The aim is to ensure that any changes are based on a considered understanding of the village’s past, present and future and that they bring a positive contribution to Great Houghton.
