Lydden Meadow is an attractive farmstead style development of ten high quality, energy efficient homes. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) these homes have been built to provide affordable housing primarily for people with close connections to the village through residency, family or work.

Disposal criteria laid down by the S106 should an occupant need to sell. 

  In order to buy one of these houses, the purchaser must be registered on the Local Authority’s Choice Based Lettings list and the Government’s Homebuy scheme (anyone can join these lists) and be unable to afford an open-market house. This is known as a “Qualifying Person”.   Potential purchasers who are ‘Qualifying Persons’ will be considered under a cascade system of priority: 1) firstly to anyone in the parish  which includes repurchasing by the Trust (BNCPT) 2) followed by anyone in the surrounding parishes 3) followed by anyone within the District of West Dorset 4) followed  anyone within the county of Dorset   AND if no sale has been achieved within a period of 3 months, then the property can then be sold to anyone in the UK who is a “qualifying Person”.   Typically a property valuer would see this as “unrestricted” in terms of sale opportunities.
