Two new homes planned for Stalbridge plot

TWO new homes could be built on a plot of land near the centre of Stalbridge.

Plans have been submitted to Dorset Council by Planning Issue Ltd, on behalf of Stalbridge Development Ltd, to build on a 0.08-hectare site off Lower Road.

The site is around 550 metres form the town centre, though outside the settlement boundary of Stalbridge.

It is not, however, in the green belt, the application said.

“The development will utilise an existing vehicular access along Bibberne Road, leading into the site, where the indicative site layout shows the dwellings situated in the northern and southern extents of the site,” it went on.

“Each of the dwellings is indicatively set within spacious plots, with private amenity space, which will comprise of high-quality landscaping.”

Dorset Council will now consider the plans. For more details, and to comment, log on to and search for application reference P/OUT/2024/01657.

    Please stop all this building in Stalbridge, there is nothing like enough infrastructure in Stalbridge, also there are several new houses still on the market. The volume of traffic is getting too much not to mention youngsters getting up to no good in the holidays, there is nothing for them to do. I am against this application.
