Helen Jackson (Dorset Council Principal Transport Planner) told us “Alderholt is not located on or close to a prime transport corridor so that would appear to conflict with the transport policy.’

Just to confirm that I am the right person in terms of transport concerns in Alderholt and your comments about the lack of adequate bus service provision are noted and have been passed on to planning colleagues at East Dorset who are dealing with the Local Plan. Your explanation of the current bus service provision in Alderholt is very helpful and I have already responded to East Dorset colleagues with concerns that public transport links in Alderholt are poor and if transport alternatives are not provided through the development, this will result in greater car dependency which conflicts with current national planning policy and local transport plan policy.”
