Dorset Council Local Plan

alt="Dorset Local Plan logo""

The Bridport Area Neighbourhood Plan has to comply with the adopted 2015 West Dorset Local Plan which itself had been under review but which will now be incorporated within an evolving Dorset Council Local Plan.

In 2017 Bradpole Parish Council responded to the West Dorset Local Plan Review:

Bradpole PC Response to WDDC “Issues & Options” 2017

Following Council unification Dorset Council has embarked upon a new LOCAL PLAN process to incorporate the gathered evidence from West Dorset District Council and other Districts. The first 8-week public consultation is taking place between 18th January and 15th March 2021.

As part of the West Dorset Local Plan Review a Landscape and Heritage Survey had been produced in which the sensitive areas in Bradpole Civil Parish are highlighted under the following areas:

Area 1 Land around the Bradpole Conservation Area

Area 2 Land around Lee Lane

Area 8 Land around Watton Hill & Pymore

All three areas are rated as having an overall moderate-high sensitivity.

The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment

This Assessment is likely to be updated further during the preparation of the Dorset Local Plan.
