    East Dorset District Council Butchering Trees
    A resident of Verwood has hit out at East Dorset District Council (EDDC) for chopping down trees unnecessarily. Gary Lynch says he has been told EDDC are chopping down an average of seven hundred trees a year and they are not replacing them. My Lynch started asking questions when a couple of trees were felled opposite his home after a neighbour was told by the council workers the trees were being removed to make it easier to cut the...

    Wimborne Residents To Get New Recycling And Rubbish Collection
    Dorset County Council have recently published changes to their existing recycling and rubbish collection services which are due to come into effect in Wimborne on Monday the 29th October 2012.

    New Law Could Help Save Uddens Woodland
    A new rule added to the new planning laws by Local Government Secretary Eric Pickles could see the proposed gypsy and traveller site at Uddens Woodland dropped. Gypsies and travellers will be banned from camping on Green Belt land, overturning guidance issued by the last Labour Government allowing councils to authorise the building of gypsy and traveller sites on protected land to meet a specific, identified need. Mr Pickles has...

    Do the East Dorset County Council planners actually know what they are doing?
    What are the East Dorset District Council planners thinking? Seriously, I'd like to know, because I really can't follow their logic at all sometimes. I was reading about how they have rejected planning permission for a care home scheme in Wimborne on the grounds that it was too big and would be an eyesore…really?
