The request was successful.

Dear Poole Borough Council,

Could you please tell me how many names are on your "Right to Build/Self Build" register and how many plots have been allocated via this scheme.

Yours faithfully,

Arthur Cox

Sue Ludwig, Poole Borough Council

Dear Mr Cox

I write further to your enquiry received yesterday and respond as follows:

The Borough of Poole Self Build Register currently has 98 entries.

No sites have yet been allocated. However, the draft Poole Local Plan at Policy PP10: Strategic urban extensions, states that Planning Permission for housing on sites north of Bearwood and Merley, will only be granted where the scheme: …..at “(b) provides a mix of housing types with a focus on housing suitable for families, properties that enable local residents to ‘right-size’, specialist housing for an ageing population and provision of custom/self build plots;”

If I can assist further please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely
