Planning Applications

Purbeck District Council is the planning authority for Swanage and information in respect of planning applications can be found here.  The Town Council is a consultee in respect of all planning applications in the parish of Swanage.  Councillors consider these plans twice a month at both the monthly council meeting and the policy and planning meeting.  Plans can be viewed online through the Dorsetforyou website, make sure you have the planning number and click here.

Councillors take into consideration all written representations when making their comments, which are in turn sent to Purbeck District Council.  If you wish the Town Council to take your views into consideration, please e-mail them to or in writing to the Town Hall, High Street, Swanage BH19 2NZ.  Please include the address and reference number of the application you are referring to.
