Vandalism in Bryanston
Vandalism is on the increase in Bryanston.
On Sunday 20th April a youth was seen to smash a window on the red telephone box. The youth did own up when challenged by a resident. It has apparently been reported to the SNT who will be " having a chat" with the culprit.
Several small tress were cut down at the rear of the recreation ground to build a " children’s den". It may not seem very serious to cut down small trees but to cut down any tree over 50mm in dia you need a licence - not from the land owner but from NDDC.
To cut or damage a tree over 50mm in dia is classed as criminal damage and perpetrators can be fined up to £20,000 for serious breaches. They may also be sued by the landowner.
Thank you to those who helped with or completed the survey. The results have been published on the Blandford + website, www.blandfordplus.org.uk. It was clear at the Local Plan Hearing that the battle about where housing should go may not have been won, and local councils and residents should be preparing themselves to comment on forthcoming planning applications in the villages.
