Persimmon Will Develop Controversial Higher Blandford Road Estate

Building giant Persimmon has bought the land alongside the Higher Blandford Road which was granted consent for 55 homes in 2019.

They intend to build on these fields this year. The developer has also taken their proposal to build on adjacent land to a planning appeal.

The fields to the south of the A30 Salisbury Road are zoned for employment use. Persimmon wants to build some industrial units but mainly housing here.
