West Dorset District Council’s Planning Committee has given its approval to a reserved matters application for 292 homes at Bank and Ridge Farm in Chickerell.
The reserved matters application, which follows approval of an outline application in March 2018, comprises details of appearance, scale and landscaping of the development.
The application comes from West Dorset based developer CG Fry & Son Ltd and is on land identified for housing in the West Dorset, Weymouth and Portland Local Plan.
The development will sit on almost 30 acres of land previously used for agricultural purposes. It includes provision for 35 per cent affordable housing across a mix of tenures such as shared ownership and reduced market rent.
