MP Tells Melbury Meeting He Backs Dinah’s Hollow Plan And Wants Quick C13/A350 Decision

North Dorset MP Simon Hoare attended a public meeting at Melbury Abbas and Cann Village Hall last night.

Several villagers were upset by his comments, broadcast on Alfred, where he said that the compulsory purchase and demolition of homes along the C13 in Melbury Abbas could be one potential option for addressing long-standing traffic issues on that road and the A350.
