Standing Room only at Barrington Centre, Ferndown, 1 Feb as public air their views to the District Council

1st Feb 2012

public meeting at the Barrington Center
packed out at the Barrington Center
The District Council's Policy & Resources committee met in front of over 300 members of the public. The purpose of the meeting was to hear public views on the recently released Core Strategy document, which contains the Council's plans for building large numbers of houses in the green belt at Corfe Mullen, Wimborne, Verwood and West Parley.

The plans for West Parley are disappointingly more than those put forward in the Council's 2010 "Options". The 220 houses planned for the Dudsbury Heights field and the 300 for the New Road field represent an unsustainable 32% addition to West Parley's present housing stock. Details can be found on the Parish Council, Residents Association and Dorset for You websites - also on the Community Notice Board at Parley Cross, at the local library and at the Council Offices at Furzehill.

300+ listening to speeches

The Council allowed 20 pre selected speakers for 3 minutes each, 10 of whom were from the communities affected and the others from various interests including environmental, sports, allotments, developers and landowners. The standing room only crowd left the EDDC committee in no doubt as to their feelings on the subject. Among the speakers were two West Parley Parish Councillors, please read the very revealing remarks of Richard Heaslip and Kenny Pearce.
