During March and April this year, West Dorset District Council and Weymouth & Portland Borough Council made a call for development sites to help ensure the understanding of our land supply is fully up to date across the plan area.
The sites that were submitted during the consultation period have now been assessed and a new joint West Dorset, Weymouth and Portland SHLAA report produced. It is important to stress that the SHLAA is a technical exercise which will be used to inform planning policy. The assessment identifies sites which could potentially be suitable for development.
Any site which has been accepted as having potential in the study is not in itself an indication that planning permission would be granted; these sites will require further detailed site analysis and consultation.
There is no guarantee that suggested sites will be considered suitable for development. Development on any sites identified as having potential will still be subject to planning permission.
The link below takes you to the document that gives details of the 3 sites in Broadwindsor that were put forward by their owners for consideration and have been identified as having development potential (pages 60-63 refer to Broadwindsor) – other sites were put forward but only these 3 have been identified as possible development sites – they are:
Land adjacent to Redlands & Folly Farm (37 units)
The Craft Centre Site (16 units)
Land west of B3162 as you exit Broadwindsor towards Drimpton (10 units)
