There's outrage at plans to build a road across a school playing field in Dorchester.
Angry residents have been telling Wessex FM what they think about plans to build a road across a Thomas Hardye School playing field.
They were shown proposals to build a link road from Maiden Castle Road to the school from developer ZeroC at the school last night.
But Terri Robson was at the meeting and she thinks it's simply a money making scheme.
She told Wessex FM: "We're surrounding by beautiful fields and this playing field is being sold off basically to developers so they can make a profit. It's morally wrong and it's logistically wrong as well."
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.
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 the plans also include housing and resident Liz Hammond said "So where are all the cars associated with them going to be? It's just ridiculous."
The discussions are ongoing with representatives from the County Council, the District Council, The Town Council and the Duchy of Cornwall.
