West Dorset District Council’s planning and development control committee have now approved our scheme for the development and regeneration of the estate. We believe this will finally give the local economy the shot in the arm that it so badly needs – not only in terms of housing but in the provision of an enhanced environment, a much improved ‘public realm’, an estate that will be more attractive to visitors and potential tenants alike and a scheme that will balance the best of the old (the heritage and the history) with the best of the new.
The plans as now approved are much changed from those submitted and initially approved in 2012 and in 2009. This reflects an ongoing response to the requirements of English Heritage, the local planning authority, the Environment Agency, district councillors, and other statutory consultees.
