A detached house is to be allowed on a site off Verriotts Lane in Morcombelake.

The plot is set amongst mature trees part way up the hillside leading to the top of Hardown Hill. To its east is Barn Close and further up the hill, to the west, is Spring Bottom Cottage.

Dorset Council has approved a split level design with two storeys built into the slope and a single storey section to the rear. The house would be centrally positioned within the plot and would be in line with Seaward, which is owned by the applicants.

Previous consent had been given for the site in September 2018.
