A system for viewing and commenting on planning applications is provided on the Dorset Council website.Anyone wishing to use the facility will need to create a profile in order to submit comments on applications. This will also provide the opportunity to save searches and track applications as they go through the planning process.A User Guide detailing how to access the new system can be read HERE.Needless to say, it is both lengthy and detailed, although you do not have to be an IT expert to register and start using it. It will, however, take a little time to get used to.

Recycling & Rubbish Bins – Jumping the Gun
Please resist the temptation to “put the bins out early” until at least late afternoon on the day before collection. There have been several instances of late when bins have been left out days in advance cluttering up the village. Very often these early bins emanate from holiday lets and rental properties. Owners of these businesses are reminded that this recycling and rubbish must be removed by a commercial waste contractor. Failure to do so may leave the business owner liable to prosecution by the local authority if they are found to be using the domestic waste collection.
Spot It – Report It
Potholes, poor drainage, flooding, dangerous trees, overgrown vegetation, damaged signs – you name it, we probably have it somewhere in the village. If you come across such problems, don't wait for someone else to report it – please report it direct to Dorset Council here: https://www.dorsetforyou.com/travel-dorset/contact-dorset-highways
Village Notice Boards – Rules of Engagement
All notices placed on the village notice boards must comply with the following:-•No larger than A5•No commercial “For Sale” notices advertising goods or services •One poster should suffice for a number of events, e.g. Social Committee list of annual dates and events.•Only local events in and around the Bride Valley•Respect other relevant in-date notices on display•Pin tidily – do not use staples.Notices not conforming with the above will be removedWhilst the above rules may appear somewhat rigid, it is done to avoid overcrowding and enable organisers of as many events as possible to display all their key information clearly.
