Dorset Heathland Planning Framework

(3 Feb 12- 16 Mar 12)


It is proposed to replace the current Dorset Heathland Interim Planning Framework (IPF) with a Dorset Heathland Planning Framework Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) covering the period April 2012 to April 2014. In practice there will be no change to the way that the new SPD works compared to the previous IPF. However, the advantage and purpose of converting the IPF to a SPD is that it will bring it within the current planning system and it will become part of each of the participating local authorities Local Development Frameworks.

It is proposed that the SPD functions in the same way as the IPF and on this basis the SPD sets out a revised programme of mitigation required to enable the predicted levels of residential development over the two year period to come forward.

Consultation was held for six weeks from 3rd February 2012 , closing on 16th March 2012. The draft document was available on the website and a paper version at Planning and Regeneration Services at the Civic Centre and at any Borough of Poole Library.
