Julianstown Village Design Statement (2010)
The Heritage Council’s National Village Design Statement (VDS) Programme provides an opportunity for meaningful public participation in the Irish planning system. The Julianstown VDS is the national ‘pilot’ for the Heritage Council’s National Village Design Programme II. This ‘pilot’ project has been conceived over a period of two years.
The Julianstown ‘Pilot’ VDS embraces a collaborative and participative approach to village design, whereby local communities have a real ‘voice’ in how their villages are planned and managed in the future. Communities are encouraged under the aims of Programme II, to ‘Chair’ the local VDS Project from the outset.
