Buzzz, News, Politics

Planning permission for a development of 30 affordable homes has been given by West Dorset District Council under delegated authority.

The scheme, which is located on the north-east side of Beaminster town, will provide 4 one-bedroom flats, 14 two-bedroom houses and 12 three-bedroom houses. The majority of these will be provided along a winding ‘village street’ and will come in the form of terraced and semi-detached homes.

19 of the homes will be for rent, which will be available from around £80 per week for a one-bedroom flat, to approximately £110 per week for a three-bedroom house.

11 of the houses are being built to help people onto the property ladder through shared ownership.  To register your interest and find out more about the scheme log onto

All 30 homes will meet ‘Nationally Described Space Standards’ which means that the properties have been designed to provide families with the space needed for them to live comfortably.
