Rampisham Down Solar Farm

30th June 2015 A public inquiry is to be held into the proposed solar farm following a government decision. Dorset CPRE requested a call-in on decision following approval on 15th January 2015.

Mapperton Solar Farm

July 22nd: It was a sad day for local democracy with East Dorset DC (EDDC) yesterday ignoring the largest ever protest by local residents to a solar installation in Dorset. The Committee voted 7-3 to approve. Excellent hard-hitting speeches made by Mapperton Preservation Group, Dorset CPRE, Sturminster Marshall PC, and  the local District Councillor, all opposing the plan fell on mostly deaf ears.

Recent CPRE report

July 2015 report: Rural areas must have special treatment to tackle housing crisis: http://ow.ly/PgAjs. The new paper argues that the special characteristics of rural areas need to be recognised in Government housing policies, such as in the new Right to Buy proposal.

We celebrated 'Love Where You Live' in Dorchester on Saturday 24th September 2011
