Dorset Council Planners Approve An Extension Opposed By Fontmell Magna Parish

Dorset Council’s Planning Committee usually only debates sizeable applications, while officers normally deal with smaller projects.

But on Tuesday, proposals to extend 54 West Street in Fontmell Magna were debated by councillors, for reasons of transparency as the applicant works for Dorset Council.

The council approved a request for an extension. This contradicts the Parish Council’s view. Our report explains why.
