The Great Baddow Village Design Statement (VDS) was formally adopted by Chelmsford Borough Council on 8th March 2011. It now forms part of the Borough Council's Local Development Framework and is a material consideration when determining planning applications.

The VDS describes the qualities and characteristics that people value in the parish and sets out guidance on how to care for those qualities, and how development and changes can be designed and properly managed to respect the village setting.
