Appeal for up to 130 dwellings at land at Station Road, Stalbridge, Dorset.

Stalbridge masterplan

In February 2022, Emery Planning presented evidence in relation to housing land supply on behalf of Gladman Developments Ltd at a public inquiry concerning an appeal for up to 130 dwellings at land at Station Road, Stalbridge, Dorset. In allowing the appeal, the Inspector concluded that a deliverable five year housing land supply could not be demonstrated in the former North Dorset area because the Council had not provided the clear evidence required for the inclusion of several sites which did not have detailed planning permission. The Inspector concluded that the deliverable supply equated to 4.35 years and as a result of this and the fact that the Housing Delivery Test result for the former North Dorset area was below 75% applied the tilted balance to the presumption in favour of sustainable development and granted outline planning permission.
