Town Design Statement & Local Distinctiveness

New Forest District Council intend to produce Supplementary Planning Documents on the different towns and large villages within their area, with New Milton and Barton-on-Sea piloting the project. The document aims to guide householders, landowners, businesses and developers on the design of new buildings, with particular regard to character retention and implementation of related policies within the District Council’s recently adopted ‘Core Strategy’, plus implementation of the other policies within. Appendix 3 of the document contains the adopted New Milton Town Design Statement.

The document is now available for viewing by using the link below. Alternatively, hard copies can be obtained on payment of £5 plus £1.50 postage and packing, by calling the District Council’s Planning Policy team on 02380 285352.
