New development proposal

he Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) group has just met with a developer about a proposal for 60-100 new homes within the redline boundary of this image.  This will be presented at the Parish Council meeting on the 11th July. The developer's public consultation for this site will be in September with the plan to make an outline planning application in December.  Unless there is a very motivated group to drive forward a neighbourhood plan that promotes another viable site(s) I think there is nothing in planning policy to stop the development.

We do have time to influence a detail application for the site, what it will look like, the mix and density of houses, whether we want a proportion of houses available for local people etc through an NDP.  We also have the opportunity to influence what we would like a developer to contribute toward for our community.

We need more volunteers to get the NDP though in good time to influence this development. The NDP working group will be at the next Parish Council meeting.

Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride

The 19th Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride will take place on Sunday, July 1. The event offers four routes through the Dorset countryside: a 15 mile ride around Lytchett Matravers, a 25 mile ride which includes part of Charborough Park, a 40 mile ride along the River Stour and Winterborne Valley, and a challenging 60 mile ride which passes through Milton Abbas. All routes will be fully supported by marshals and signs, refreshment stops, mechanics at the start/finish, and masseurs. Riders can enter individually or as part of a team of four.

The Dorset Bike Ride will raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, and will offer a prize for the top fundraiser.
