  1. After reading the Dec minutes again, is it Little Haines that you have put NO OBJECTION too? as its written it looks like its attached to North of crown road.

  2. Good Morning Parish Councillors
    Having just read the minutes of the pc meeting on December 2nd I am slightly confused as to why the pc have written NO OBJECTION against the planning application 2/2018/1124/OUT….. 72 dwellings north of crown road & community facilities.
    I attended this meeting and I have no recollection of the pc agreeing No OBJECTION.
    Do all parish councillors get notification when a member of the public posts here? Or is it just the pc clerk, I would be very grateful if a member of the pc or Sally would kindly message back with clarification on the ‘No OBJECTION’ to North of crown road as written in the Dec minutes.
    With grateful Thanks.

  3. Would it be possible to list all the current planning applications on this web site with direct links to the Dorset Council Planning Page. This may help and encourage people to keep up with what is going on as regards planning issues in Marnhull.
    Thank you.

    • It was originally intended that this website would provide a link to the current applications for Marnhull on the Dorset Council system. Unfortunately the planning system is constructed in such a way that it is not possible to display a page from it on another website. The only option would be to manually place a link to each application on the parish council website, which would be time consuming, error prone and usually out of date. So we decided against the manual option. Recent applications in Marnhull can easily be found on the planning system by using the ‘Weekly / Monthly by Parish’ search option.

  4. Firstly – Is it possible to have some signage put up around the village to protect horse riders? There are currently none – and as we only have the roads to ride on motorists seem completely unaware that they may come across horses on the village roads.

    Secondly – With 111 footpaths on only 2 bridleways (both down at Moorside) is it not possible for the PC to look at the possibility of upgrading some of the footpaths to make them accessible for horse riders?

  5. Just read the comments in the messenger regarding speeding by Rob Cullender and as a resident of many years would concur that Crown Road has never been an issue with speeding. The efforts of the CSWG would be better served checking the speeds along sodom lane and particularly around the junction of Nash lane and into Pilwell. As We live in Pilwell we have noticed a definite increase in speed from traffic over the years and has made entering or leaving our drive somewhat challenging. Please ask the CSWG if they could spend a bit of time in Sodom lane and Pilwell. It would be appreciated. Thanks.

    • Hi Chris,

      Thank you for your comments. Our community speed watch group does monitor traffic along Sodom Lane and has in fact recorded one vehicle speeding in that location so far. We are not able to choose a monitoring site without Dorset Police carrying out an assessment and approving it, so we cannot just move location as you suggest. However the site in Sodom Lane does also cover a part of Pilwell so that any vehicle speeding along Pilwell should be spotted by the team. We have five sites in total across the village so we do not monitor Sodom every session, but please rest assured we will be covering Sodom Lane/Pilwell regularly.

  6. Could we please have some ‘horse’ signs round the village. I’ve had drivers on blind corners saying ‘I didn’t expect to see a horse’! No answer to that really except ‘you are in the counrty’.

    Many thanks
