20mph speed limit proposals
A public consultation took place in October 2019 regarding proposals to introduce 20mph speed limits in most of Charminster village (see plan below). The scheme will be paid for by the Parish Council.
Although there was an objection to the scheme, Dorset Council legal department has confirmed that the proposals do not need to be taken to the Northern Planning Board and can be signed off by the cabinet member under the Executive Decision Process. We are waiting for this to happen but events of the last couple of months have understandably taken priority.
