Have Your Say !


Dear Resident

We are writing to let you know that Purbeck District Council is conducting an additional consultation on housing options as part of the Local Plan Review.

The consultation document and supporting evidence can be found online at: https://www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/Purbeck-local-plan-review.

Please find below a link to a copy of the consultation document and a 'sample' questionnaire. Local residents and businesses will be receiving their own questionnaire and consultation document via Royal Mail.
