STAND - Save The Area North of Dorchester

Reason for signing

  • 3,500 new dwellings on the (presently unspoilt) northern edge of Dorchester = a likely population increase of around 10,000 people and some 7,000 additional vehicles using the already overcrowded local roads. How is a local authority that already needs to make massive savings going to afford the additional infrastructure & services needed to support this massive development? These are issues that will be the tax payer's problem, not the property developer's.
