Planning permission sought for 158 dwellings

North Dorset District Council

Lightwood was invited to promote both of these sites in the village of Stalbridge and in doing so developed a very positive working relationship with local councillors and planning officers.

The primary challenge was to assist the local community with the relocation of sporting facilities and to ensure that the village received a substantial amount of affordable housing for local residents. Aside from the practical aspirations of the scheme, landscape impacts and adherence to the form and style of the Conservation Area were paramount.

This scheme proved to be an example of positive working relationships and decisions made around the planning balance.
