Village Appraisals

In 1979, 1989 and 1999 the Parish Council undertook appraisals of the village which were a survey of the parish as it was at those dates and also encompassed the views of its inhabitants as to its future.

These documents were produced as a useful guide to the Parish Council itself as well as to the District and County Council Planning Authorities, and also in order to stimulate and inform discussion within the village.

In 2009 a survey was compiled which was significantly more comprehensive than previous surveys and the resulting Shipton Gorge Parish Appraisal 2009 was published in April 2010.
