Over Village Design Guide (2020)

The Over Village Design Guide was adopted by South Cambridgeshire District Council as a Supplementary Planning Document in January 2020. It supplements a number of policies in the adopted South Cambridgeshire Local Plan and is a material consideration in the determination of planning applications.

The District Council explains the role of Village Design Guides in these terms:

"A Village Design Guide describes the distinctive character of the village and sets out guidelines for how this should be enhanced by new developments. It helps communities and planners shape the character of new development in your area, in response to community priorities. It is a way to provide more locally specific detail, which augments and amplifies our Local Plan policies."
