There is a lengthy planning history for this property dating back over 30 years which demonstrates a range of residential and commercial uses taking pace over that period. Until recently the property was being used as an office for the NHS with some health care provision taking place on the ground and first floors.

The appliaction was recieved by West Dorset District Council on 13th November 2018 and has been given refrence no.WD/D/18/002656.

There is both local and national planning policy support for the redevelopment of the site for alternative uses.

There are a number of development constraints which may require further investigation: these include: Flood Risk Ground Conditions Access/Highways Heritage considerations
