The Dorset Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) objects are to improve, protect and preserve for the benefit of the public, the countryside and the towns and rural villages of the County of Dorset. In the Dorset Branch we have five local Groups who monitor nearly every planning application to ensure they comply with the Council’s Plan Policy and Design Guidelines. Please contact us if you are unable to locate the information you require.
Well done to Thorncombe Village Shop winner Best Dorset Village Shop 2015, but Motcombe
Community Shop came in as a worthy runner-up. Please do visit these stores, but remember
all Dorset village shops deserve your support.
