Broadwindsor Group Parish Community Land Trust

Posted on

Update, March 2017

Site feasibility surveys of the proposed site at Netherhay Lane, Drimpton, were completed during February.

Trewin Design will submit a revised layout plan to Dorset County Partnerships for pre-application discussion with planners. This meeting is expected to take place around the end of March.

The CLT’s preferred option would be to install an on-site sewerage system for this development. This would not impact on the mains sewer in view of the problems currently experienced in Marksmead and Oxhayes in Drimpton.

Dorset Council Partnerships’ housing need information indicates that there are currently 14 households registered within the Broadwindsor Group Parish area. A draft allocation plan specific to this site is being developed by the CLT and Yarlington Housing Group. This will be for properties to rent and shared ownership properties and will outline priorities and provide definitions of ‘local connections’.

A quarterly newsletter – BGP CLT  News is now available on our website (see link below) as well as on the parish council, Broadwindsor and Drimpton websites. Copies are also available from Broadwindsor Community Stores, the pubs and village halls in Broadwindsor and Drimpton and Kittwhistle Garage.

Members of BGP CLT will be providing a presentation on the project at the Broadwindsor Group Parish Council Annual meeting on 15 May at Drimpton Village Hall.

More information is available on the BGP CLT website at
