BEFORE it puts in a planning application for 32 homes in late June Bridport Cohousing group is conducting a second public consultation this weekend.

The development is proposed on a site just west of Bridport Hospital.

The consultations, which will be at the Cherry Tree Communal Room, off Hospital Lane, on Friday evening May 23 from 6.30pm to 8pm and at the Tourist Information Centre, from 10am until 3pm on Saturday, May 24.

Monica King, co-ordinator of the residents’ group steering the scheme, said: “We appreciate the feedback we have received from our extensive earlier public consultations with local people.

“We have had lots of valuable guidance and help from our MP and district, town and parish councillors, from planners and members of the public.”

She said as a result of these discussions the group has been able to address the concerns specific to the site, She added feedback made it clear that the main concern in Bridport is the provision of homes for local people, at a price that that local people can afford to pay. To ensure fairness in the allocation of homes to people who wish to live in an affordable cohousing neighbourhood, the residents’ group has worked with the local authority to develop a local lettings policy to be administered by a committee with representation from the parish council, local authority, housing association, and cohousing residents.
