The Parish Church of St Mary Magdalene

What is a Parish Plan?

4. A Parish Plan is significantly different from but complementary to a Village Design Statement (VDS).  A VDS assesses the current fabric, the physical character, of the village and shows how the people of that village wish the built environment to evolve.  By comparison a Parish Plan looks at the community and says how the residents of that community would like it to develop.  It is therefore more wide-ranging than a VDS.

5. Hilton already has a Village Design Statement that was adopted by Huntingdonshire District Council as supplementary planning guidance in early 2000.   The District Council has similarly been invited to consider adopting Hilton's Parish Plan as supplementary planning guidance.
