Land availability

Land Availability 'call for sites'

Do you know of any land or premises that you think might be suitable for housing or employment uses?

Dorset Council has begun work on a new Dorset-wide Local Plan. To help in this process the council is carrying out a 'call for sites' to identify sites that may have potential for development over the next 15 years and beyond.

The ‘call for sites’ is an opportunity for agents, landowners and developers to submit land which they believe could be developed to meet future demand for homes and jobs. The council would also be interested in sites that maybe suitable for housing, employment, affordable housing, gypsies and travellers or travelling showpeople. This will help to ensure that there is sufficient land available within our local areas to meet our development needs.

If you own or part own any site(s) larger than 0.3 ha in size or with a site capacity of 10 dwellings or greater, that may have development potential, please let us know by completing and submitting our site submission form. Before completing your form, please read the guidance note. A methodology also accompanies this land availability assessment. Completed forms should be returned using the contact details below. Paper copies of the form can also be requested using the same contact details.

All site owner details submitted as part of the ‘call for sites’ will remain confidential. To be assessed sites will need to be submitted by Friday 25 October 2019.

If you are a landowner or agent who has previously submitted a site to any previous ‘call for sites’ in Dorset please resubmit your details.
