Overlooking Ryme Intrinseca


This website aims to become a source of information for both the local community and those planning to visit or actually visiting this fantastic part of Dorset. We really need the local community to become involved by sending us news of forthcoming events, reports on recent events and photographs. In particular we would like to populate the Calendar with the dates of every activity which is going on within the Parish. The website has been designed to be more interactive by allowing you to use the Contact Us  page to send us some news, feedback or to ask a question or if you require an entry placed on the Calendar. The editor of the website will respond to the messages you leave or add your information. There is also an opportunity for you to join our e-mailing list through the contact us section. If you do so we will email you a copy of the Parish Council minutes together with any other information that we feel may be of interest. A very important section of this website is devoted to the development of the Neighbourhood Plan (Y&RINP) (NB: the Parish Plan has moved to the Parish Council pages) and is where information relating to this can be viewed. Additionally you can also access the Community Forum where you can read discussions, and leave comments, with regard to village issues. The Village Notice Boardwhich enables villagers to post information relating to the village, can also be accessed from the Community Forum Pages Details of Road Closure Notices are now available by clicking the highlighted text or the link below.

Planning Appeals

Land North of Ryme Road Planning Application – Appeal Decision

The Planning Inspector, Lesley Coffey, has now made her decision and has dismissed the Appeal by Gladman.

This is good news for all those who raised objections and concerns and it is now even more important that we complete our Neighbourhood Plan – if you would like to volunteer to help with this please see the information on the NP pages.

Her full report can be viewed by clicking here.


Following the approval of the 2nd application for 87 houses on the land north of St Andrews School the Parish Council is in discussion with the Developer. Our initial meetings have been most productive and it is proposed to engage with the Builder who purchases the site to discuss the proposed design options. The Neighbourhood Plan Group is aware of the situation and will be developing definitive proposals on house design and site layout to be used in the parish and these will be discussed with the Builder before he puts in his Planning Application. In this way it is hoped that a compromise satisfactory to all parties will be achieved


Wednesday 15 February: Parish Council Meeting at 7.30pm in the St Andrew’s School Hall
