AS A resident in a village where the AONB has failed to protect an iconic landscape from inappropriate development overlooking the UNESCO World heritage “Jurassic” Coast, I look forward to having a National Park. Over many years, we have seen a general deterioration in Dorset’s environment and biodiversity. The proposed Dorset National Park would have the clear responsibility and the resources to look after our heritage and help pass it on for future generations to enjoy. We need it as soon as possible before more damage is done to our environment and communities.
