Councillor Wants Maltings Resident On Town Council Group Evaluating Local Plan

A representative of The Maltings will be invited onto a Shaftesbury Town Council working party set up to draft feedback to Dorset Council’s Local Plan.

That blueprint determines new infrastructure projects up until 2038.

Planning chairman Cllr Matt Welch is keen to include representation from the estate because he’s unhappy that the ‘spine road’ linking The Maltings to Wincombe Lane has been promised yet never constructed.
