Worth Matravers, Old Quarry Close

New Homes for Local People

In 2019 East Boro, working in partnership with Dorset Council, started work on the development of a site in Worth Matravers. This site adjacent to Abbascombe Cottages was granted planning permission as an ’exception site’ to provide affordable homes for local people.


This new development of nine new homes was completed and handed over to East Boro on 24th March 2020 and we are excited to showcase these properties.

These homes will be let or sold to local people. Preference will be given to people with a strong connection with the parish of Worth Matravers. Consideration may also be given to people with a strong connection to adjacent parishes.


Low Cost Home Ownership (LCHO) Properties

There are four properties for sale – one x 1 bedroom bungalow and three x 2 bedroom houses. These properties will be sold to local people at 75% of market value. The properties will be sold with a covenant ensuring that any resales are also to local people at 75% of the then current market value.


Sales are proceeding on several properties but expressions of interest are welcomed.

For further information or to register interest in purchasing a LCHO property please email: [email protected]

or contact the Development Team on 01202 883503 extn. 019.


Rental Properties

There are also five properties for rent – one x 1 bedroom bungalow, one x 2 bedroom bungalow, one x 2 bedroom house and two x 3 bedroom houses.

These homes will be let by East Boro to people nominated by Dorset Council. Dorset Council are selecting their nominees from local people in housing need and registered with Dorset Home Choice.
