Purbeck Local Plan Part 1: Planning Purbeck's Future

The Purbeck Local Plan Part 1 (PLP1) sets out the strategic vision and policies for Purbeck for the period 2006 - 2027. The council adopted it on 13 November 2012 and it will be used to guide new development and determine planning applications. Since the adoption of the PLP1, the Council has started work on the Purbeck Local Plan Review. An Eastern Dorset Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) was published in 2015 as part of the evidence base for the Local Plan Review. The Council is currently working with the other Eastern Dorset authorities to commission an update to the 2015 SHMA. The Council is not using the 2015 SHMA when determining planning applications, and any implications of the SHMA update will be considered through the Local Plan Review.
