Avoid Render Says Shaftesbury Councillor Following New Estate Experience

Dorset and Shaftesbury Town councillor Tim Cook has urged a developer to steer clear of render finishes on buildings.

Cllr Cook told Tuesday’s Dorset Council Northern Planning Committee meeting that there were examples of ‘horribly discoloured’ render on the Salisbury Road in Shaftesbury and in Gillingham.

He was making his comments in a debate over the proposed St Martin’s development in Gillingham. In fact, the developer wasn’t intending to use render after all.
