About the Thruxton Village Design Statement:

The village of Thruxton was first mentioned in the Domesday Book and was previously settled by the Romans and Saxons. By the 1900’s the layout of the village followed the stream and this layout remained relatively unchanged until modern housing estates were built from the mid 1960’s. A Conservation Area, to protect the older part of the village, was adopted in 1985. Since then there has been no major housing developments with only minor infilling, the housing layout remaining relatively unchanged. Currently there are no undeveloped areas within the Village Plan. The purpose of this Village Design Statement is to highlight the salient features of the village so that future planning decisions can be tailored to maintain its characteristics. This Statement has been prepared in conjunction with Thruxton villagers and was formally adopted by the Parish Council in February 2005.
