Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /websites/123reg/LinuxPackage21/pe/te/rs/petersfieldtomorrow.co.uk/public_html/TownCharacter.php on line 48

The Town Character Group has produced a Town Design Statement for Petersfield which was published in October 2010.
The main aims of a Town Design Statement are:
- Improve new development by providing guidance to landowners, developers and architects before they prepare proposals.
- Reduce unsympathetic development by making it easier for the planning authorities to seek improvements in applications.
- Raise local awareness on local design and environmental issues
We are aiming for the highest level, which is the adoption of the document as a supplementary planning document. This is a relatively new designation, and requires a number of steps, including the completion of a sustainability appraisal, to have been completed.
During the process there have been many opportunities for the local community to participate through workshops, exhibitions, and helping to gather materials.
