The planning inspector has overturned Dorset Council’s refusal of a five-bedroomed eco-home on Breach Lane.
The home and garage are allowed. Shaftesbury Town Council had raised no objection. Town councillor John Lewer said it was, “one of the most difficult applications we’ve had to deal with.” He explains why.
The news means a couple with local connections will be able to build their dream home and retire here.
