West Dorset Local Plan

Most new buildings or major changes to existing buildings or to the local environment need consent - known as planning permission. The local planning authority is West Dorset District Council and Char Valley Parish Council is a formal consultee on all applications submitted in our area.

Here is a link to the adopted West Dorset, Weymouth & Portland Local Plan 2015. This document, which will open as a PDF file is the overarching strategic policy on planning in our area.

For details of applications on which Char Valley Parish Council has been consulted and the Council's responses please see the Planning Log subpage. This also contain details of our consultation process.
