People's Assemblies on the Dorset Local Plan
Caz Dennett says: "The Local Plan outlines the strategy for meeting the needs of the area such as housing, employment, community services and facilities including schools, shops, retail and leisure and is now out for public consultation which ends on 15 March 2021.
The Plan will last at least until 2038, so will shape all development for the next 17 years – that’s a long time. And anything built in that time will leave a legacy lasting for several generations. We cannot afford to get it wrong.
Town and Parish Council’s across Dorset will be putting in submissions to the consultation. Some are also keen to hear everyone’s thoughts and ideas. So they asked if Assemblies could be arranged to do this. The Assemblies are open to all."

Dorset Council says: “The plan directs development to the most suitable locations near to existing facilities, and detailed policies promote high quality development that respects and enhances the character of each local area. The plan also protects Dorset’s natural environment and contributes towards the mitigation and adaptation to climate change”.
But where do you think things like new housing should be built? How many homes do we need? Is it the right housing e.g. how it’s built, materials used, rental or ownership, affordable, social, etc?
