Land behind Badger’s Row, Bradpole Old Village. May 2018 update

Within the centre of Bradpole old village and situated behind the recently constructed Badgers Row cottages is an area of land which has been largely unattended since the cottages were constructed a few years ago.
Land behind Badgers Row, Bradpole

The land is owned by West Dorset District Council (WDDC).

Bradpole Parish Council has raised concerns over unfulfilled planning obligations on several occasions seeking to ensure that this area is turned into a Green Space for the people of the village in line with those agreed planning obligations.

The Parish Council had sought to have this land designated as a Green Space under the developing Neighbourhood Plan which would have provided some measure of protection, as requested by residents. One unfortunate consequence of  prevarication is that this has not yet been possible because the land is not currently being used as a public green space and this sorry tale explains why.

So what’s going on?… you may well ask.

The situation has been referred to the M.P. for West Dorset who has asked to be advised if the work has not commenced by the end of May 2018.

Go to our Badgers Row Wildlife Area page for the full story and the latest action.

Unfortunately a few irresponsible people are using the land to dump rubbish when there is a perfectly good re-cycling centre in Bridport.
