Village Design Statement adopted

Following nearly a year of work by a small group of volunteers, the Abbots Bromley Village Design Statement was submitted to East Staffordshire Borough Council in March 2006.

The document (available elsewhere on this website) was created using a series of consultations and reviews that allowed any interested villager to have their say on matters relating to the future development.

Now that the Design Statement has been formally adopted, copies will be printed for use by all those proposing development in the village – whether new build or changes to existing property. The team also hope to be able to provide a copy for each household in the parish.
