Lightwood secure permission for 60 units in Dorset

North Dorset District Council Planning Committee have resolved to grant consent for Lightwood’s application for 60 dwellings on land at Thornhill Road, Stalbridge.

Lightwood has been actively promoting the land at Stalbridge through planning policy since 2014, working collaboratively with officers, members, town councillors and residents. Identified as a sustainable area for growth, Stalbridge became victim to a number of speculative applications which accelerated the submission of Lightwood’s applications at Barrow Hill (98 units) and Thornhill Road (60 units) so as to be heard at the same committee.

Despite both Lightwood applications being recommended for approval, the proposals at Barrow Hill were refused by the committee but will be appealed.
