Holwell Neighbourhood Plan
At a meeting of the Full Council (26th February 2019), West Dorset District Council took the decision to make the Holwell Neighbourhood Plan (as modified in accordance with the Examiner’s recommendations) part of the development plan for the Holwell neighbourhood area. The Holwell Neighbourhood Plan along with the Adopted West Dorset, Weymouth & Portland Joint Local Plan 2015 is being used by planning officers as the principle documents in which to make their decisions on planning applications in the Holwell area.
The members of the Holwell Neighbourhood Plan steering group were congratulated for their hard work.
