Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Authority - Consultation
We are consulting on our draft Community Safety Plan, which sets out the key challenges and risks facing us over the coming years. This is our high-level strategic plan.
With future financial uncertainty, the plan details what we intend to carry on doing and what we intend to review and do differently, in order to continue to provide a high level of service to our communities.
Please complete a survey on transport in Dorset.
Dorset Council and BCP Council need your views to help them develop a new local transport plan to travel safely and easily around the county, while protecting its special landscape.

The playground is monitored by a rota of volunteers to whom the Parish Council is very grateful.
The volunteers inspect the condition of the play equipment, reporting back to the Parish Council. They also empty the litter bins situated in the playground as these playground bins are not the responsibility of Dorset Council.
You have probably seen articles in the press recently about the need to protect yourself against a potentially deadly virus spread by ticks now present in Dorset.

Following the Parish Council’s unsuccessful attempt to have Gollop's Ground designated a Village Green, the Chair and Vice Chair and two other residents met with the landowners on Friday 3rd September in Gollop's Ground.
The landowners rejected the Parish Council's proposal to lease or purchase the field for the continued use of the community.
You may know that the Parish Council was asked by members of the public present at the Ordinary Parish Council Meeting of June 1st 2021 to apply to Dorset Council to have Gollop’s Ground registered as a Village Green since, in the terms of the Commons Act, the field had been used as one for as long as anyone can remember and as far as we know, at least from the 1880’s.
