Dorset Council is consulting residents on their new, proposed social housing policy.
If you have applied for affordable housing or know somebody who is about to, Cllr Graham Carr-Jones wants you to read these proposals. He wants one set of rules for the entire Dorset Council area. At the moment there are different policies for each of the former district council areas, such as North Dorset.
The change means that, potentially, people from anywhere in the Dorset Council area could apply for affordable homes in Shaftesbury although Graham says that’s unlikely. The proposed policy is here.
