North Tawton's Village Design Statement was prepared in 2003 and adopted by West Devon Borough Council in January 2004.  The Village Design Statement (VDS) was prepared by the local community to identify those factors that are important to them and to ensure that they are reflected in new developments.  West Devon have adopted the guidelines included in the North Tawton Village Design Statement as Supplementary Planning Guidance insofar as they are consonant with the policies of the Local Plan.

The Village Design Statement can be viewed (please note it is a large file and may take a few moments to download).
