Village Design Statement

The flyer below was distributed to every household within Bulmer with the September 2007 edition of 'What's On?'. The links below provide more information on what a VDS is and why it is so important for it to be produced for Bulmer.

This site will also inform you of how you can become involved at the launch date and in producing the actual final document that will be distributed to every household upon completion and acceptance by Braintree District Council.

The links below are re-produced by courtesy of the Rural Community Council of Essex (RCCE).
