Appeal Against Refusal for 55 dwellings in Shaftesbury

Project

LVA has submitted an appeal against North Dorset District Council’s refusal of our planning application for up to 55 dwellings on a 3.22-hectare (7.95 acre) site (Planning Ref. 2/2018/0602/OUT).
 
The site is in a logical location for landscape-led residential development in the sustainable town of Shaftesbury, where there is a significant need for housing.
 
We could deliver up to 55 dwellings on the site, as well as  a number of public benefits such as 30% affordable housing, access to generous areas of community green spaces that can be enjoyed for recreation and wellbeing, contact with wildlife and nature, as well as offering views out to the AONB.
 
Whilst the application was recommended for approval by the planning officer and received no technical objections, the North Dorset Planning Committee voted to refuse the application.
