School Traffic Plans Under Attack From Local Residents
7:10am 26th October 2014
"It'll affect everyone and it's causing major concern" - that's what a Dorchester resident has been telling Wessex FM about new plans to ease school congestion in the area.
We've already heard from Zero C developers that their proposals for to Help Thomas Hardye School with their traffic problems would only use an unused strip of school playing fields.
Plans currently involve building a link from Maiden Castle road to the school.
ZeroC Managing Director Kim Slowe said "People perhaps haven't got all the facts which is always unfortunate but it will not impact at all on the playing field area. The road would run along a strip of grass that is currently not being used."
But that's not good enough for resident Julie-Ann Booker.
She's told Wessex FM "It will obviously affect a huge number of local people and mums are very concerned about their children who now use that green space that'll be replaced by two roads."
There's an open evening at the school on 12th November from 5.15pm to 8pm where you can find out more about the plans.
