Quantum has successfully gained planning consent to develop a new hotel and extra care development in Sherborne in Dorset. Quantum acquired the site of the former Sherborne Hotel in 2015 and since then has worked hard to design and deliver detailed plans to build 119 extra care houses and apartments and a new 24 bedroom hotel for the town.
West Dorset District Council granted planning permission at their planning committee meeting on Thursday 16thNovember 2017. The scheme’s approval follows months of direct consultation including public exhibitions with local residents, businesses, key stakeholders and West Dorset District Council with Quantum’s community engagement and planning teams.
Work on the site is due to start in 2018, and Quantum will be setting up a Construction Liaison Group with local residents to communicate the plans and progress and to address any concerns that may arise during construction.

Acquired from NHS Property Services, this 6.5-acre former hospital site in the centre of the cathedral city of Salisbury, had suffered many years of neglect and planning objections. Quantum’s community team engaged face-to-face with thousands of local residents, community groups and Councillors. Their approach resulted in an unprecedented 832 letters of support for the application and unanimous consent to regenerate the gateway site; one of the largest schemes in the city’s recent memory. This mixed-use development is centred on providing affordable retirement living within c. 180 new dwellings and also includes a restaurant, retail units, the refurbishment of two Grade II listed buildings and new garden squares.
