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.
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.
