THE deadline for residents to have their say on a document that could help shape planning policy in Swanage is fast approaching.

Residents and businesses have until March 17 to get involved in the Swanage Local Plan (SLP).

Purbeck District Council has already adopted the Purbeck Local Plan, which essentially sets out preferred planning policy in the district until 2027.

Details of the consultation and questionnaire are available online at swanage-local-plan, at local libraries, the Swanage Town Council office, and the district council’s Westport House headquarters in Worgret Road, Wareham.
