Inspector's final Report on the Housing Plans

10 April 2014
The Inspector has now published her report, following the Examination in Public last September and her subsequent order that "Main Modifications" should be made to the East Dorset District Council's housing plans.

Her report can be read in full online at www.dorsetforyou.com/408258 or obtained from the Council offices. It makes no further changes to the housing sites and numbers, which are those that we knew in January - please navigate to the article dated 3 January on the latest news page.

The full report (29 pages) contains a great deal of legal detail on policies, infrastructure, green belts, roads, and the environment. On the main issues - the housing sites in the green belts at West Parley, Ferndown, Colehill, Wimborne, Corfe Mullen and Verwood - the only two changes across the district are the ones we saw in January this year. Those are the addition of a new green belt housing site at Verwood, and the reduction in size and numbers of houses on the Dudsbury Hill site (FWP7) at West Parley.

The District Council will now vote to "adopt" the Core Strategy at a meeting at Furzehill on 28 April. This is a procedural formality, as the final approval of the Core Strategy now rests with the Secretary of State (Eric Pickles, Dept of Communities and Local Government D.C.L.G.) and it is to be expected that he may make his decision in about 3 months or so.

Our District Council has already received planning applications for building on some of the core strategy sites, but we are not expecting any planning applications for the West Parley sites for some time (that is, if the Secretary of State approves the Core Strategy).

Any queries residents may have should go to our two District Councillors or our Parish Council Clerk, all of whose contact details are on this website.
