People in Dorset who feel they have land suitable for development are being invited to contact Dorset Council.
The authority is preparing the next stages of its Local Plan and is asking for submissions of land that may have the potential for: new housing; accommodation for Gypsy and Traveller communities; employment land; mitigation for habitat sites and renewable or low carbon energy.
Any submission will be considered as to whether they are suitable for the intended use (having regard to relevant planning policies, site characteristics and any supporting information/evidence provided), whether development would be viable and whether there any limitations on the way the land could be used which could restrict development.
Cllr David Walsh, Dorset Council’s portfolio holder for Planning, said: “It is important that we maintain an up-to-date picture of available land for all types of development for the future of the council area.
“We are custodians of the area, and as such need to balance the future needs of residents for homes, work, health and leisure with managing and maintaining the environments that makes Dorset unique.”
