The Dorset Council Local Plan consultation has now finished. Thank you to everyone who responded.

We are reading the comments received during the consultation and considering what changes we may need to make to the plan. When we've made further changes, we will publish them for comment.

To find out how we make sure our communities help shape the plan, read our Statement of Community Involvement. To find out more about the timeline of the plan, read our Local Development Scheme.
