Proposed development at Charlton Down

The Parish Council has been contacted by a land development company regarding the site to the west of Charlton Down, adjacent to Back Lane and the River Cerne.

The company intends to submit an outline planning application for approximately 50 homes in the next few weeks and Parish Councillors have had a virtual meeting with them to gather more information.

At the moment, it is important to realise there is no developer involved.  The application is purely speculative and will be for outline planning permission only after which, if successful they will look for a developer to buy the land and take the plans forward.

The Parish Council has spoken with all household directly backing onto Back Lane to make them aware.  The first draft of a plan can be seen below but please be aware this is likely to change.
