Dorset Council has approved a 30-home development on the southern side of Fontmell Magna.
Twelve of the homes will be affordable, although not all locals were in favour of the estate. The Parish Council offered its support after initial plans were revised.
The developer will create a new drop-off area and car park for St Andrews Primary School. Cllr Laura Kurton explains why that offer proved popular. Now locals are being asked to choose a name for the new estate.
