Meeting Aims To Ease Traffic Problems

Thomas Hardye School Field 1

9:05am 12th November 2014

Controversial plans are being discussed today at Thomas Hardye School about proposals to try and ease traffic problems around the Victoria Park area in Dorchester.

Wessex FM has been hearing from concerned residents who say they're appalled at the plans to build a link from Maiden Castle road to the school and buildings on an unused strip of school playing fields.

They're arguing planners aren't recognising how much people use that land and will be making their voices heard at the public meeting which is taking place at the school from 5:15-8pm.

We've already heard from Zero C developers that their proposals for to Help Thomas Hardye School with their traffic problems would help solve long-term traffic issues with bus offs/pickups on Coburg Road.

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."
