“The public examination gets underway on the 25th November. The Petition of Advearse sets out the concerns and fears of many townspeople and others with regard to the potential development of a vast number of homes at Vearse Farm, concerns and fears which I share.
We are all too aware of the floods in the recent past and, coupled with the pending development of the Waste Transfer station at Broomhills, will only put even more pressure on the inadequate road structure.
Moreover, it is Central Government policy not to build on green land but to concentrate on brown land sites”.
A recent article in The Telegraph encourages the building of homes on brown field sites.
A large building development in Gloucestershire has been stopped because of pressure from councillors:
Gloucestershire green belt is spared 800 new homes
With the same commitment from local councillors here in Dorset, the Vearse Farm development could also be stopped.
PRESS RELEASE FROM ADVEARSE
WEBSITE LAUNCHED – APRIL 2014
ADVEARSE has announced the launch of its website.
A spokesperson said ‘we have developed the site in response to the many requests we have received asking us to do so’.
The site gives the background to the establishment of the group to raise public awareness of the massive development proposed in the West Dorset Local Plan for the Vearse Farm area of Bridport. There is the opportunity for people to post comments on the site. The site has been developed by Roger Goudge who commented ‘the site is an early stage in its development and we will expect to build the content over the coming months’.
ADVEARSE is monitoring the growing number of similar protests across the country and believes the website will alert to the many people across the country who enjoy the area round Bridport and who will be shocked at the prospect of such a glaring scar on the entrance to the town.
ADVEARSE can also be contacted via the e-mail address
