As one of many with young families living in Shaftesbury Abby Down and James Hughes are gathering support to fight for improvements to our town's schools, medical centre, business & employment opportunities, transport and roads, town maintenance, improved and more facilities and mostly importantly...
TO PAUSE HOUSE BUILDING UNTIL OUR TOWN'S INFRASTRUCTURE CAN SUPPORT OUR GROWING POPULATION.

We urge you to contact NDDC and tell them what you think. If you wish to get involved wih the campaign, and we welcome anyone who does, please contact save.shaftesbury@gmail.com

How can you help?

3: Contact your local representatives expressing your concerns about current development levels.

LIST OF SHAFTESBURY’S DEMANDS REGARDING INFRASTRUCTURE
  • BUILD SUITABLE ROAD ACCESS
  • BUILD AN ADDITIONAL PRIMARY SCHOOL
  • BUILD AN ADDITIONAL MEDICAL CENTRE
  • BUILD AND CREATE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES AND BUSINESS UNITS
  • DEVELOP, RE-OPEN, BUILD AND IMPROVE SHAFTESBURY'S SPORTING AND LESIURE FACILITIES
  • UPGRADE THE LOCAL TRANSPORT SYSTEM
  • INCREASE TOWN MAINTENANCE
  • CREATE AND ENCOURAGE SOCIAL COHESION - LET'S NOT BECOME ANOTHER COMMUTER TOWN
  • SELL ALL OF THE EXISTING NEWLY-BUILT HOUSES IN SHAFTESBURY, FIRST - NOT TO ANOTHER SOCIAL HOUSING GROUP
  • KEEP SHAFTESBURY'S RURAL CHARM

If the People in charge can prove they care about Shaftesbury and provide for all of the basic needs Shaftesbury has, then there would be no problem with building more houses to meet demand.
