Also noted were the efforts of the many residents who mow the verges outside their houses, the smartness of business premises and the All Saints Churchyard. It is always wise to take some form of Identification if residents choose to use these sites.
Monday Lane 1 southbound closed from the quarry entrance on the A should only be a short closure Tuesday Lane 1 southbound closed from the quarry entrance down to Cooper Dean.

It was experiencing high numbers of vehicles which were driving at speed, which could potentially damage their vehicles, trying to dodge the queues on Christchurch Road.
Ridgeway is not adopted by Dorset County Council and the residents of Ridgeway pay for the road to be maintained. The second sign is at the entrance of the Cul de Sac on Mags Barrow.
Numerous cars would turn off New Road to avoid the queues, however the second turn for Mags Barrow leads to a cul de sac, so signage has been erected to deter the speeding vehicles up and down this dead end road. The roundabout — and all approaches — will be closed to traffic from 8pm to 6am on Monday 24, Tuesday 25, Wednesday 26, Thursday 27 and Friday 28 September so that surfacing and white lining works can be carried out.
Local access will be maintained but there may be a short delay while we move machinery or carry out a task there will be no through access.

Several months ago, polite notices were added to all the bins to encourage correct use but regrettably in the last few weeks, these have all been ripped off and 1 smeared with The litter bins are not emptied by Dorset Waste Partnership, nor are they emptied by a contractor.
They are emptied by 2 residents who are part of the West Parley volunteers, who work tirelessly to keep the village at its best. To keep it litter free for all to enjoy.
The notice was requesting the dog waste was not deposited in these bins, as these volunteers also sort the litter in the bins so that as much as possible is recycled.
As you can imagine they do not want to handle split dog waste bags, nor can they lift the bag which is extremely heavy when containing the dog waste. The dog waste bins were purchased by the Parish Council and are emptied weekly by a contractor.
The notices became necessary after a number of people were stopped when depositing large volumes of dog waste bags which were brought from home. We respectfully ask that all users of Parish Council facilities, abide by the requests.The West of England Economic Growth Conference has 5 sessions in total with 4 remaining.
