Dorset Neighbourhood Plans - update

A few notable Neighbourhood Plan milestones achieved so far this month
  • Piddle Valley Neighbourhood Plan's referendum took place yesterday (19 April) - the results have been declared with 75% in favour of the plan
  • Gillingham's examination has now concluded, and the examiner's report has been published, signalling that this too can progress to referendum subject to some relatively modest amendments.
  • Sturminster Newton's plan is now going through its pre-examination consultation
  • The pre-examination consultation on the plan for Askerswell parish, created by their Neighbourhood Forum, ends on Monday.
  • The plans for Fontmell Magna and Pimperne have also been submitted for their examination. 
  • Hazelbury Bryan has published its pre-submission draft plan for consultation
A fantastic amount of effort by local volunteers representing their communities, so that local people can have more of a voice on the future of their area!
