Please email us ahead of the meeting to receive an agenda.
Dorset Community Energy
Dorset Community Energy hope to build a small ground-mounted solar array by the reservoir at Dottery (on land West Of Atrim Road, Dottery, Dorset DT6 5HS). They plan to make the electricity generated from the proposed array available to local residents via an Energy Local Club. These clubs allow members to buy cheaper electricity direct from a local renewable energy installation; and allow those generating the electricity to achieve slightly larger income than selling direct to the grid.
Planet Wimborne calls for action on glyphosate weedkiller
Planet Wimborne is campaigning for the use of glyphosate to be drastically reduced by Dorset Council and also for the public to be more discriminating in their choice of weed control. This is based on the mounting scientific evidence of the harmful effects of glyphosates, not only to aquatic life but also to insects such as bees. There is also concern that it might be a human carcinogen.
