Streamlined Planning Approved For Dorset Innovation Park, Wool
Dorset Innovation Park has been granted an accelerated planning process through an approved Local Development Order (LDO).
This key employment site in Wool, Dorset now has the benefit of fast-track planning for employment development. The LDO enables appropriate development whilst respecting the local environment.
The LDO was prepared by consultants, Stride Treglown, using feedback gathered from residents, businesses and other organisations during public consultations.
Jim Stewart, Chair of the Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership, welcomed the LDO approval for Dorset Innovation Park. He said: “The Local Development Order is the key that will unlock rapid investment in the site by target sector companies, reducing the planning process from several months to less than 28 days.
“The LDO will benefit those wanting to expand their existing businesses on site, relocate to take advantage of business rate relief, or respond quickly to newly awarded contracts. This will all lead to new highly skilled employment opportunities and an increase in employment productivity for Dorset.”
