Dorset is based in the South West of England and sits on the coast of the English Channel. The county covers an area of approximately 2,500 square kilometres. This is the equivalent to 1,000 square miles. The main town is Dorchester which is located in the south of the county. Following changes in the local government almost 50 years ago in 1974, the county line was extended. The county was extended eastwards to include towns within Hampshire. These included Christchurch and Bournemouth, famed for its glorious sandy beaches on the south coast. It is estimated half of the Dorset county population live in the South East of Dorset. The other areas of Dorset are considered expansive and rural. The population in these areas is fairly sparse.
The county dates back many years to the Neolithic age. The history books note that Dorset’s main tribe, the Celtic tribe, were defeated by the Romans. The Dorset area has been conquered by the Saxons, the Vikings and experienced much civil unrest during the English Civil War. In the 8th Century, the Vikings first raid on Britain occurred in Dorset and it is reported the Black Death entered the country in 1348 at Melcombe Regis. Dorset was influential in the Normandy landings with many boats embarking from Poole and Portland.
Dorset Council is responsible for processing planning permission, planning applications and appeals in the area.
As planning consultants, we work across the whole area including the main towns and villages of Purbeck, Portland, Bournemouth, Weymouth, Bridport, Beaminster, Dorchester and Christchurch.
