Hee hee! Some news. I had an email from Mr Atlay after I tried to find out about the ballot. It seems they have now dropped the Town Green application as "the majority" of the polled residents (Mr Atlay chose the polled addresses/streets, by the way) are happy with Waitrose being here. I would DEARLY have loved to see the attempts to prove the private cricket club as open public space in continual use which even the most diehard KWTG supporter must have found an absurd notion. It seems common sense has finally prevailed.
Our household received a ballot paper, just the one, between two of us. There was no information about when the results would be made known and we have received nothing further since returning our paper several weeks ago. Such a ballot could never have been judged fair or representative with one ballot per (selected) household. However it is excellent news that the public enquiry application has been dropped. It could only have been a farcical waste of public money. Now let's put all this behind us and get on with life in lovely Wimborne.
