Ropley Village Design Statement

Many people feel that they have no say over what development takes place in their community; but Village Design Statements (VDSs) offer a constructive solution to this dilemma.

Ropley now has an approved Village Design Statement. This can be downloaded from the “Download” section of this website.

The VDS has incorporated issues which generated significant feedback in the Ropley Village Appraisal 2000.

For more general information on Village Design Statements, please see our Introduction and “VDS Info” pages.

A number of other villages’ Village Design Statements, together with background information on Ropley, are available via our “Links” page.
