A section of the road from Milborne St Andrew to Milton Abbas will be closed from 7am on the 27th August 2016. It is anticipated that works will be complete by 4pm on 27th August, however the closure notice remains valid for 5 days. You can view the closure notice here.
On behalf of the Parish Council, the Neighbourhood Development Plan Working Party would like to invite residents to an event entitled: “Early views on the Milton Abbas NDP”.
We recently ran a Vision Questionnaire that asked all residents to tell us about their vision for the development of the village over the coming years. We asked you about your likes and dislikes, about the things you treasure and the improvements you want to see.
At this event on Wednesday 24th August, in the Reading Rooms at 7.30pm, the Working Party will present the feedback we’ve had and suggest the core themes that will be taken forward in the Neighbourhood Development Plan.
Please come and hear what the residents have said – there will also be an opportunity to ask questions about the NDP and put your additional ideas forward.
If you haven’t returned a Vision Survey, but would like to do so, the final deadline is Friday 5th August.
The Playpark has been accepted as a nominee for the One Family Foundation appeal and has requested a £25,000 donation. The Playpark’s success or failure is now based purely on total votes received. Please share the following link with your family, friends, neighbours, colleagues and associates and encourage them to vote and then to share with their contacts. Thank you.

Since the disappearance of the finger post pointing down to Jane’s Wood there has been some confusion about the status of the path that runs between the fields and the houses in Athelstan Way. The Title to Jane’s Wood includes the following easement: “A right of way to and from the Property at all reasonable times but on foot only over a strip of land 8’ in width between the [start and end of the path].”
The Parish Council’s understanding is that as the Title is held in trust for the community the community is the real owner of Jane’s Wood and as such any member of the community may use the path.
