Slyer’s Lane Wind Farm updated 28th January

Great news. West Dorset District Council's development control committee today rejected the plan to erect six giant turbines on the outskirts of Dorchester. Councillors voted 6-3 against the application submitted by Broadview Energy. David Peacock has produced an updated Dorset CPRE Report on Renewable Energy Installations in Dorset County dated 1st January 2016.

Mapperton Solar Farm update 5th Jan 2016

Lawyers have lodged an application for Judicial Review to quash the decision to grant planning permission on five grounds of procedural error, and this will now be held on 18th May in the High Court in London. They are acting for Katharine Butler, who is supported by the Mapperton Preservation Group and Dorset CPRE. We believe we have a strong case, and are optimistic about the outcome.

Dorset CPRE Dorset CPRE will sponsor for the third year running the class ‘Best Village Shop’, in the Best Dorset Village Competition run by Dorset Community Action.
