Check Out Plans for a Thousand New Homes in Dorchester


7:56am 27th February 2013

You can view plans for a thousand new homes near Dorchester for the first time today (Wednesday 27th February).

The new builds would be part of West Dorset District Council's Local Plan.

Under initial designs, they'd be built to the South East of the County Town - 35% are lined up to be affordable housing.

Community facilities, offices and some industrial units will be built on the site too which Councillors say will create new jobs.

Designs for the one thousand new properties are on display at the new Council Offices on South Walks from 1pm until 7pm.

Members of the public are encouraged to attend and let District Leaders know what they think.
