Following successful promotion of development with the local planning process, outline planning permission has now been secured for a mixed use development of up to 350 dwellings and community facilities on land at Blandford St Mary.
Development in accordance with the outline planning permission will deliver 30% affordable housing to meet local needs, a financial contribution to education facilities in the town, a community hall, allotments, enhancements of the trailway network and highway improvements. The planning permission also provides scope for a number of optional facilities including care home, medical centre, public house/restaurant.
Malcolm Brown, Director of Planning at Sibbett Gregory, commented: “this successful outcome has been achieved by:
- Effective promotion of the site through the local plan process.
- By working with architects and others to develop a strong case for sustainable development
- Compilation of environmental impact statement concluding that there would be no significant impact upon the environment.”
