The Council’s brownfield site register shows the scale of available brownfield land that could be used to build genuinely affordable houses, but instead is being ignored in favour of greenfield sites eg the massive Vearse Farm urban extension.
Below is the list of sites and the houses that could be built to ensure Bridport’s housing need and not developer greed is met!
Interestingly the Council own the Flood Lane site and have sold it to McCarthy & Stone to build 42 high-quality Retirement Living apartments. Genuinely affordable houses for the young people of Bridport clearly are a low priority to the Council!
