Plans for new housing developments near Dorchester and at Hollymoor Lane in Beaminster have been abandoned by West Dorset District Council.

The decision was made at a full council meeting yesterday, and comes after strong feedback from a public consultation.

The local plan looks at housing supply over the next 18 years.

500 homes will be built at Crossways, but that's a reduction to what was originally proposed.

850 houses will go up in Chickerell, 760 at Vearse Farm near Bridport and 120 at land north of Broadwindsor Road.
