Alderholt Meadows Planning Appeal Fund

Published: 29 Feb 24

The Parish Council has agreed to seek legal support to oppose Dudsbury's planning application appeal for 1700 houses to be built in the parish. We have been granted Rule 6 status, meaning we have the right to cross-examine other parties and make our own case in support of Dorset Council. We intend for this representation to include a barrister and expert witnesses for Planning and Transport. To raise awareness of the appeal and our crowdfunding campaign (click on the title of this news update to take you to the crowd funding page) and ensure the message reaches everyone, we have organised a leaflet drop this Saturday 2nd March. If you can assist with posting leaflets, even to a few houses, please come along to the Parish Council office between 9am and 11am on Saturday. Thank you. Read More...
