- PROPOSED TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF BACK DROVE AND SOUTH STREET, LEIGH
- Gathering evidence to support the extension of the 40mph limit beyond Totnell to Three Gates
You can help strengthen the case for the 40mph zone to be extended from Totnell to Three Gates by noting any traffic incident, or near miss, and informing Dorset Police (phone is best – but try https://www.dorset.police.uk/do-it-online/ if you cannot get through) . Be sure to get an incident number. Once (but not before please) you have successfully registered the issue with Dorset Police, please also inform Alan Bennett , Leigh Parish Council and Dave Whiteoak , High Stoy Parish Council.
We need to demonstrate to Dorset Council there’s a problem presented by the increased volume of traffic traveling at higher speeds on a stretch of road which has a blind corner, more houses, an increasing numbers of pedestrians (on a road with no footway), a busy dairy farm, an active equestrian centre where horse and riders use the road and a registered educational centre at Pogles Wood. Serious incidents have happened in the past and we are keen to reduce the speed limit to avoid accidents in the future.
These pages include various Parish Council documents, information about contacting your council, along with dates and minutes of meetings. We aim to publish meeting agendas and minutes on this website and also on the village notice board by the village hall.
Members of the public are always welcome at meetings during an open discussion period.
