A number of Byelaws govern development within the Darras Hall Estate and have been laid down over the years. The majority are from the inception of the estate, some more quirky than others with later additions to reflect more modern times.

Among the characteristics which make the Darras Hall Estate unique is the low level density of dwellings, the large plot sizes and open spaces, together with a high percentage of greenery throughout the Estate creating a relaxed and comfortable street scene.

In order to protect these core characteristics it is the policy of the Committee to prohibit the infilling of vacant lands and/or the sub-division of existing plots.

In the event of a demolition, a one for one property will only be permitted and where there is a predominance of a particular style of dwelling, i.e. bungalows or other low level housing, construction will be restricted to similar heights.
