The Mineral Sites Plan identifies specific locations for sand and gravel, crushed rock, ball clay, Purbeck Stone, other building stone and a site for the provision of recycled aggregates. The Plan also proposes the allocation of the Puddletown Road Policy Area.
The Waste Plan, once adopted, will establish the vision, objectives and spatial strategy for the development of waste management facilities in Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole up to 2033. It contains 13 site allocations for new and improved waste management facilities. In addition, the Plan contains a series of detailed policies that will be used when determining future planning applications for waste development.
Maps of the proposed sites, guidance information and submission details can be found on www.dorsetforyou.com/mwdf . The sites of particular interest to Bere Regis Parish Council are those at Philliols Farm (AS12) and Gallows Hill (AS28).
The Parish Council will be discussing the Plan at its January 2018 meeting and members of the public are invited to attend and submit their comments. The consultation started on the 1st December and runs until the 31st January 2018. This will be the last opportunity to make representations before the Plans are submitted to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.
