Last chance to comment on the Neighbourhood Plan

Lychett-Leaflet-pdcPurbeck District Council have now published the final draft of the Lytchett Matravers Neighbourhood Plan, for comments.

It’s available to be viewed online, at the library or at the Purbeck District Council offices.

The deadline for comments is 4pm Friday 18th March 2016. Comments can be submitted via email or by phone or in writing to Purbeck District Council.

All comments received will be passed to an independent examiner, before a public examination. Should the examiner and District Council agree with the plan, it will then proceed to a referendum followed by the Council deciding to ‘make’ or ‘refuse to make’ the plan.

Lytchett Minster Community Defibrillator Project

Please note the following very useful community event in Upton.

The Lytchett Minster Community Defibrillator Project is holding a Community Defibrillator Awareness Session at Upton Junior School on Monday 14th December, between 7 and 9pm.

When it comes to cardiac events seconds really do matter so knowing how to use a defib and where they are, is the difference between life and death!
