I can't see if the ponderosa developement & fry's development link up at the bottom of Putton Lane. I am hoping they are separate??

No pavements either are shown along Putton Lane which is madness considering the amount of children which use it and there is obviously going to be a significant increase in traffice. Its bad enough now especially with the hedges being overgrown and neither traffic or pedestrians can see clearly around the bed coming down Putton Lane.

The Ponderosa will only access by the north part of Putton Lane, except for the property that is being built on Green Lane.

Dorset County Council appear to have a new policy that no development will have pavements that will become maintained at public expense. Any pavement within the new Fry's development will be paid for by the residents, as they have done in areas of Charlton Down.

Oliver Letwin MP is aware of DCC's failure to "design in" such needs, and DCC claim that pedestrians can use the existing network, which continues to prove that highways staff need to get out of that darkened room a bit more often.

Take a walk from Green Lane to Bennetts and you'll see how must mud and grass has claimed the pedestrian zone of Putton Lane. DCC are adamant that their Highway Inspectors inspect every road every six months. Wakey wakey, sleepy head.

Lol inspected every 6 months with blindfolds! Green Lane to Bennetts is awful still flooding or it is because drains are blocked or work incomplete, hedgerows need cutting back all along Putton Lane, gulleys need clearing. Oliver Letwin will shortly be contacted..... FRYS & DCC must share same blindfold to think pavements aren't needed.

Fry (any developer) only install the pavements that they are asked to install by Dorset County Council. Not Fry's fault.

I have witnessed Highway Inspectors doing their inspections. They are done by driving at 10 to 20 miles an hour. So the inspector is in the middle of the road, with his head about 3 feet off the ground. Quite as to how they think that they will see pavement, drain or hedge issues is beyond me.

Highway Inspector for this area refused to believe that there was a culvert under Putton Lane at the flooding area. And he continues to believe that all water drains down through the ground. D'oh.  Hello, Chickerell clay here.
Hence why he had a tiny bit of the ditch dug out, and had a new gully installed directly over the culvert - which means that any mud will wash directly into the culvert and block it.  :|

A natural water course runs from near Crook Hill and Glennie Way through Woodland Trust to the area that floods on Putton Lane. Concrete pipes connect all the road gullies from near Victory Hall to this point, and near Facey Road to this point. All water is then supposed to drain across the natural water course to Chafey's Lake. This natural water course is not connected to the 2 large ponds on Chickerell Link Road.
