Over 700 jobs could be coming South Dorset!
Plans have been submitted to transform a local quarry into a holiday resort.
West Dorset District Council are considering an application to create what's being called "Silverlake" at the Warmwell Quarry near Crossways.
The gravel extraction site is due to cease operations in 2017.
Developers want to build up to a thousand holiday homes on the massive site spanning over 560 acres, over 100 years.
A nature reserve creating new habitats to protect Dorset's wildlife is also detailed in the plans.
