The All Saints Church which occupied THIS SITE WAS DEMOLISHED about twelve year ago and the site has REMAINED VACANT.

Planning Permission was granted Ref: 3/06/1116/FUL For the construction of a new church however this scheme was abandoned.

A further planning consent was obtained in 2012 to re-develop the site with two storey building accommodating six flats. This permission has now lapsed. The Parochial Church Council now wish to dispose of the site and are inviting best offers either subject to planning or for an outright purchase.


The property is neighboured by residential property and has a frontage to Wimborne Road West approximately 2 miles east of Wimborne. The site is level and enjoys excellent seclusion.


Frontage 18.8 m (62 ft.) Average Depth 49.7m (167 ft.) Site Area 912 m2 (.22acres)


The site was subject to a Grant of Planning Permission by East Dorset District Council Ref: 3/12/0900/FUL Dated 10th January 2013. The permission granted 'Change of use from Place of Worship to Residential and Construct a Block of Six Flats in a Two Storey Building with Surface Parking at Front…'

An email enquiry to East Dorset Planning Department in July 2017 indicated that 'the planning merits of the scheme are likely to be still acceptable as design policy remains similar to that of the previous East Dorset Local Plan that was in force at the time that the permission was granted.'

A copy of the planning permission may be viewed with associated plans either online at 'Dorsetforyou' or at the offices of the selling agents who also hold a copy of the email from the planning department referred to in the previous paragraph.
