..of having its first District Wide plan adopted. A momentous event and the document has a monumental title to match: “The Purbeck Local Plan Part 1: Planning Purbeck’s Future Core Strategy”.  The Inspector conducting the Examination in Public into this document (let’s call it say a Core Strategy for ease) has reported and judged that the plan is sound subject to incorporation of the “main modifications” which have already been published in June.

Apparently Purbeck District Council will consider adoption of the Core Strategy at a meeting of the full Council on 13th November. Presumably if the Council considers it sensible they will agree to adopt it. Fantastic.

Wondering whether the new policies will affect you? Well firstly are you likely to be making any planning applications in the Purbeck District? No? Almost certainly it won’t affect you then. Otherwise give us a call and we can let you know.
