The FuturePlanning the future Dorset Green roadshows Have your say
Planning the future
Dorset Green wants to grow and develop over the next few decades. It is clear that the Isle of Purbeck has a shortage of jobs local people can have and homes local people can afford. It is also clear that, to grow, Dorset Green needs to attract firms from across Purbeck, Dorset and the UK.
In 2008, a series of consultations led to a Masterplan for the future: a development that respected the environment and provided a range of uses, including shops, leisure provision, residential accommodation and various types of employment. You can look at the Masterplan here.
There has already been some progress. Last year, planning permission was given for space to help small businesses start up. Earlier this year, a new biomass plant on the site that will help save energy and reduce carbon emissions across Dorset was also given the green light.
Now, Dorset Green wants your thoughts on how that plan can be implemented. You can get involved by coming to one of our roadshows that will take place during June or by filling in a questionnaire – click here for more details.
