A POP-UP camp site for a field on the approach road to Portland Bill and changes to the Portland Osprey Quay boatyard feature in local planning request to Dorset Council this week.

In the Dorchester area a change is requested to a gas storage facility at a nearby village hall while a garden centre to the east of the county town is asking for a new sales area.

In most cases residents are able to make online comments for or against applications, or by writing or emailing the council quoting the planning reference number.

The majority of planning decisions are made by council planning case officers with an expectation that most will be concluded within 16 weeks.
