Taken from the Dorset for You website:

National planning policy requires local planning authorities to have a clear understanding of housing need in their area. Local authorities are required to prepare a Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) to provide realistic assumptions about the availability, suitability and the likely economic viability of land to meet the identified need for housing over the plan period.

During March and April 2014, West Dorset District Council and Weymouth & Portland Borough Council made a call for development sites to help ensure the understanding of our land supply is fully up to date across the plan area.

Those sites that were submitted during the consultation period have now been assessed and a new joint West Dorset, Weymouth and Portland SHLAA report produced. It is important to stress that the SHLAA is a technical exercise which will be used to inform planning policy. The assessment identifies sites which could potentially be suitable for development.

Any site which has been accepted as having potential in the study is not in itself an indication that planning permission would be granted; these sites would require further detailed site analysis and consultation. 

There is no guarantee that suggested sites will be considered suitable for development. Development on any sites identified as having potential will still be subject to planning permission.

Here’s the link to large sites in Broadwindsor which have been put forward by their owners and identified as having development potential (pages 60-63):
