Welcome to the Corfe Mullen Parish Council website


The detailed plans for a major new development adjacent to Corfe Mullen Recreation has been submitted and can be viewed here 

This is for 78 homes plus 20 social rented or shared ownership homes on two of the three fields earmarked for housing.

Please be aware that the principle of building has already been established here and comments are now invited on the detailed layout of the housing estate, landscaping, design and type of dwellings etc.

The Parish Council considered this application on 28th May and has no objection to the plans, adding the following comments:

"The overall design of the development as a whole and the individual dwellings is sympathetic and it is pleasing to see that all dwellings are houses rather than flats, with the affordable housing interspersed.  Dorset Council should ensure that the detailed planting plan includes appropriate planting which can be maintained in the future, and that there is a minimal loss of mature trees, with trees of appropriate species planted as replacements throughout the development."

Public comments must be submitted by 8th June 2019.

Village SignCorfe Mullen is a large village in the county of Dorset, situated on the north-western urban fringe of the Poole-Bournemouth conurbation. Although set on the edge of an urban area, Corfe Mullen is surrounded by the Green Belt and forms part of the rural district of East Dorset.

The name Corfe Mullen is from the Old English corf "a cutting or pass", and the Old French molin "a Mill" which refers to the old water mill on the River Stour, where the original village stood.

Although large, Corfe Mullen retains its village identity with six churches, three pubs, four schools, various shops and local businesses, a village hall, and a whole host of community and sports organisations which help to preserve the community spirit and sense of belonging.

The Parish Council has secured excellent recreational facilities for the enjoyment of residents: 44 acres at Corfe Mullen Recreation Ground, plus over 11 acres at Springdale Road Open Space in the southern part of the village.
