200 comments and risingWednesday, June 30th, 2010
The £60 million development of Charles Street that includes the £10.7m new West Dorset District Council office has now received 200 comments.
This development has really polarised opinions within the Dorchester community.
A final decision will be made by the district council’s development control committee later this year. If plans are approved building work will start in April next year.
Last week (w/c 21 June), town councillors voted to recommend the application for refusal at a special planning meeting with concern that the council broke their own planning policy rules.
Whilst 200 comments seems to be a lot, taken in context of the County it only represents 0.049% of the local population.
We at DBID are keen to hear your opinions.
