Website Launched To Campaign Against New Homes For Dorchester

Dorchester New Homes

8:31am 8th March 2013
(Updated 1:54pm 8th March 2013)

A band of residents are calling on people to try and stop a thousand homes being built to the east of Dorchester.

Plans for the development are included in West Dorset District Council's Local Draft Plan.

The Local Plan sets out a long term planning strategy to meet future housing, employment and leisure needs in the area.

But people living near the proposed housing site are angry the Council won't agree to a public meeting.

The District Council has already held a public consultation on the issue for people to have their say on plans.

But Campaigners are concerned proposals are moving faster than normal and are encouraging people to take a stand and comment on the housing development on the Council's Website.
