Dorset Council Will Consider Environmental Impact Of Dinah’s Hollow Works

The Dorset councillor who oversees highways has promised that some mature trees will be saved and new trees planted during works to stabilise the banks at Dinah’s Hollow on the C13 road.

Cllr Ray Bryan says Dorset Council will consider its environmental obligations during the bank stabilisation because the council has declared a climate emergency.

The £4 million scheme, planned for 2022, was discussed in yesterday’s Dorset Council cabinet meeting after Melbury Abbas resident Roy Phillips wrote to ask why Dorset Council had not responded to letters from concerned residents and the parish, which were sent ahead of a meeting in October.
