Planning

Encouraging economic regeneration, provision of high quality housing and commercial premises to meet the needs of businesses

The Sturminster Newton Chamber of Commerce can give you an overview of the planning process and the North Dorset Local Plan and Neighbourhood Plan for the Town.  We can also point you in the right direction to get help from the planning officers.

Please see the links to the Local Plan and the Town’s Neighbourhood Plan.  We’ve also included a link to Dorset Council’s planning portal which gives you access to the on-line services to help you decide if you need planning consent, to review planning submissions and to submit your own.
