Sturminster Marshall Neighbourhood Plan
Options Consultation

We are making good progress on our Neighbourhood Plan, and hope to have a draft plan ready for you to comment on by Easter next year. However, before we can get to that stage, we need some more feedback from everyone living in the parish on some of the key issues.

We have tried to keep the Questionnaire simple be using tick boxes, and you can add comments where you feel it is important to explain some of your points.

Question Title

Question Title

2: Using the railway track from Station Road towards the A31 to join the path at Corfe Mullen to make a bridleway
3: Extending the footpath next to the A350 to Newton Road
4: Keeping Long Drove from Mill Lane to Moor Lane clear of vegetation.
5: Installing a bridge to cross the Stour at the Walnut Tree Field to allow walking to Shapwick or to White Mill Bridge
Traffic and Transport

Question Title

* 9. The Public Consultation and questionnaire responses in September 2019 indicated these concerns and priorities:
• New road from industrial estate/Arch Ground to A350 (Dorset Council advises this expensive and would require strong evidence of need)
• Speeding, parking and congestion in Station Road and High Street (need to mitigate extra traffic being generated)
• Risks from large lorries (Station Road and by the school)
• Congestion/accidents on A350 and A31 will worsen with extra traffic from developments.

Do you broadly agree with these points?

Heritage and Character

Question Title

Question Title

* 10. Do you agree with the approach we are taking to retain the heritage and character of the parish? Is there anything else we could do?

Question Title

* 11. The assessment and report are being progressed. Details of the report will be published on the web site as it develops.

We would like your comments, particularly about the area you live and of features that you think capture the character of your area. These could be features of housing design that contribute to the street scene, or assets that provide an insight into the historical past of the parish.

Question Title

* 12. Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas are already protected from development that would harm their character. But in the rest of the area which properties and assets do you think should be protected because they make a valuable contribution to the area’s character or history?

Potential Development Sites 
We have had all the sites independently assessed as to their possible suitability, and we would now like your opinion on whether they are suitable. 

The maps show the sites as assessed in the independent report by AECOM, as either green (which indicates that in their view at least some of the site would be suitable for development), amber (which indicates at least part of the site may be suitable for development subject to overcoming identified issues) or red (which indicates they consider the site to be entirely unsuitable for development).  The main reasons for this are explained in that report and on the slideshow summary.
