The Dorset Wide Local Plan - important information ahead of the deadline for submissions on 25th October
Now that Dorset Council has been formed following the merger of the six previous district councils, work has begun on a new Dorset Wide Local Plan. This will be the overarching development strategy that will shape the county over the next 15 years.
In order to do this, the council are calling for all sites that may have planning potential to be submitted to them by 25th October. Crucially, this includes any sites already submitted to the previous district authorities.
If you own or part own any site(s) larger than 0.3 ha in size or with a site capacity of 10 dwellings or more, that may have development potential, it would be well worth considering submitting it to Dorset Council to be added to their Land Availability schedule.
