Status

Outline Consent for 10 Houses in Dorset Village

Project

Following refusal of an application for 10 homes in February 2018, LVA successfully contested the decision at appeal, arguing that suitable development should be allowed in such villages to provide a balance of new housing supply. The Planning Inspector issued the favourable decision in March 2019. 
 
As part of the proposals, three of the houses are to be offered as ‘self-build’ plots for purchase by people wishing to build their own home. A further three will be affordable homes. 

A sale of the site has since concluded.
