Only valid planning objections can be used (see Grounds for Objection).

If any letter is racist or "NIMBY" (not in my back yard) it will be ignored. East Dorset District Council has taken police advice as to how to deal with offensive and racist written remarks.

There is a lot of information here which may add to your arguments. But this will take time. We believe that our grounds for objection cover the main points. However it is important to use your own words. EDDC have stated they will take less notice of letters that have been copied from another source.

Once you are ready with your objection letter go to http://www.dorsetforyou.com/travellerpitchesconsultation
There is a section labelled “Making Comments”

Or send your letter to:

Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Consultation
