The Braishfield Village Design Statement
The Village Design Statement records the essential character of Braishfield in the opinion of its residents in 2002. It has helped us see the beauty of our village more clearly, and it remains valid today. The recommendations aim to conserve the special qualities of the village and they should be consulted by anyone proposing to make any changes in the village. Test Valley Borough Council adopted the Village Design Statement as Supplementary Planning Guidance on 3rd April 2002 and the Statement still forms part of the Borough Council’s Planning policy for the village.
