Guys Marsh Expansion Plan Impresses Melbury Parish Council Chairman

Guys Marsh Prison wants to expand to take an additional 180 inmates. And that growth will create an extra 100 jobs.

The chairman of Melbury Abbas and Cann Parish Council, David Webber, has visited the prison recently and he tells Alfred he’s impressed with the ‘considerate’ plans put together by the Ministry of Justice. But as you’ll hear in our report, some nearby residents have written to share their concerns and objections.
