Land Needed In Dorset For Jobs and Housing


8:33am 15th August 2014

Local landowners and developers in Purbeck are being asked to help identify land that could be used for housing and employment.

The District Council's looking for suitable sites as it prepares to review the local plan.

Councillor Mike Lovell, Housing and Development Spokesperson for Purbeck District Council, said:

"The Purbeck Local Plan Part 1 has been vital in guiding future development in the District.  We have committed to complete a review of the plan by 2017 and, in order to inform this review, the Council needs to update its schedule of possible land for housing and employment development".  

The suggestions from land owners and developers will help the Council to identify options which may exist to meet future needs.  The options will then be published for public consultation to help inform the revised Local Plan.  Submitting details of potential land doesn't guarantee that it will be included in the Plan, as there are many things to consider, such as the environmental constraints, before the final decisions are made about the use for these potential sites.  

People who wish to submit details of land for consideration should complete the site submission form available at www.dorsetforyou.com/localplan/monitoring/purbeck or obtain a paper form by calling the Council's Planning Policy Team (01929 557264).

In addition the Council is also calling for any land that may have potential as a gypsy and traveller site.
Suggestions should be submitted by 5pm on Friday 12 September. For more information please contact the Planning Policy Team on 01929 557359 or email localplan@purbeck-dc.gov.uk
