What is the Parish Council’s role in the planning process?
The Parish Council (PC) is a statutory consultee and provides local knowledge of issues that affect the community. The PC should highlight how proposals will best benefit or detriment the community.
Are there any special planning considerations for Milton Abbas?
Yes. Much of the village is in the Milton Abbas Conservation Area and the original village is covered by an Article 4 Direction. The current Conservation Area Appraisal which details the extent of the Conservation Area and the Article 4 area can be downloaded from the North Dorset District Council website here.
Neighbourhood Development Plan
The Parish Council is leading the creation of a Neighbourhood Development Plan and Order for the parish. This will take some time to be completed but when done will help make sure that the location and form of future development within the parish is appropriate. More information can be found on the Neighbourhood Development Plan page.
