Wimborne RFC Planning Proposal - Time for Action

6 months ago By WRFC Web Admin

YOU CAN make a difference

The proposed planning application can be found on the website for Dorset Councils "Dorset For You". Click here for the relevant planning application details >>>

Hybrid Planning Application comprising 1) Outline planning application for residential development with associated roads, parking, turning and amenity areas; provision of local centre; provision of public open space, landscaped areas and allotments; provision of Rugby Club including clubhouse, parking and pitches; and 2) Full Planning application for change of use of agricultural land to (SANG) Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace.


You will find below, a draft letter, which has been put together as a proposed initial approach to inform East Dorset District Council of the growing concerns with the current planning process, in as much as how it affects the rugby club.

This is a “Phase 1” of a concerted lobbying of the Council, to deal with the specific “technical” issues around the planning agreement. We now feel we need to put in motion as soon as possible.

Please use the draft letter, or send your own individual letter of concern, to the Council. Or indeed if you wish, use it as a framework, if you wish to add anything further. The important issue right now is around the specifics of the planning agreement.

A second phase will follow, to deal with the softer more human aspects of the lack of support for the provision of the facilities.

You will also find attached a complete list of all East Dorset District Council elected members.

Please look for the ward for your councillor(s) as highlighted in RED

There is a tool on the EDDC web site that will help you to identify your particular councillor(s) if you are not sure who they are.

If you live outside the East Dorset district then we would suggest that you send to those councillors whose names are highlighted in GREEN, who are Leader of the Council , Cabinet Chairman and Chairman of the Planning Committee and their deputies.

A copy of the location and illustration of the site and extent of the facilities included in the awaited planning application, is also attached for identification purposes.
