Dorset Council Local Plan – your views about how your County will look in the future..
Planning affects us all. That’s because it covers areas like housing, employment and community services including schools, retail, leisure and community facilities, it works to protect our natural environment and very importantly contributes towards the mitigation and adaptation to climate change.

The vision for how Dorset can develop in all these ways up to 2038 has been set out the in a document called the draft Local Plan and, because it will affect everyone living in the county, we’re all being asked for our views on what’s in it.

Update on advertising planning applications

Update on advertising planning applications in the former North Dorset area and part of the former West Dorset area

We have been notified that the Blackmore Vale Magazine has suspended publication for a temporary period due to the Covid-19 situation. Any planning applications requiring press advertisements that would normally be advertised in the Blackmore Vale Magazine will be publicised in the Western Gazette instead from 24 April onwards. This affects the former North Dorset area and part of the former West Dorset area only.
