North Dorset Local Plan Review - Issues and Options Consultation

North Dorset District Council is embarking on producing a new Local Plan for the District, which will replace both the North Dorset District-Wide Local Plan (1st Revision) (adopted in January 2003) and the North Dorset Local Plan Part 1 (adopted in January 2016). As part of this process the Council is consulting on an Issues and Options Document from the 27 November 2017 to 22 January 2018.

The Issues and Options Document and the Sustainability Appraisal of the Issues and Options Document can be accessed via the links below. Additionally, at the bottom of this webpage are links to key associated documents that are referred to in the Issues & Options Document.
