Shaftesbury, North Dorset


Outline planning application pending for 55 dwellings


The 3.22-hectare (7.95 acres) site is located on the edge of the sustainable Town of Shaftesbury, Dorset and forms a logical location for residential development in an area where there is significant need for housing.

Following extensive discussions and close consultations with Council officers and relevant stakeholders, an outline application for up to 55 No. dwellings, vehicular access, open space and associated infrastructure was submitted to North Dorset District Council in April 2018 (Ref. 2/2018/0602/OUT).

The proposed landscape led development will bring forward a scheme that offers the opportunity to provide number of public benefits such as provision of 30% affordable housing, access to generous areas of community green spaces that can be enjoyed for recreation and wellbeing, creating opportunities for contact with wildlife and nature as well as offering views out to the AONB.

A decision is pending, and further updates will be provided as the application is considered.
