Dorset’s branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England believes Dorset Council may be asked to take on the housebuilding quota of the neighbouring BCP Council and New Forest Council areas.
Residents are currently being consulted on the new local plan. The development blueprint suggests that Dorset Council will need to build 30,500 homes between now and 2038.
This week, Cllr David Walsh told a council meeting that the number of new properties required may change. He explains why.
