WDDC offices

Some members attended a meeting in WDDC offices in Dorchester where the Government Inspector was reviewing the draft Local Plan for West Dorset. The plan has had a lot of criticism for massively adding to the pace of housing development in our area including a recommendation for 93 houses and flats on St Michael’s and a giant estate of 760 houses and an industrial park on Vearse Farm, on the town boundary. The Inspector was interested in how these figures had come about, took many notes, and we await his findings with interest.
