Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
The development of Folly Farm has meant the release of funding in the form of a Community Infrastructure Levy the intention being that this is used locally over the next 5 years to help offset the potential demands that will be placed on the “infrastructure” of the parish by the new development. A separate “CIL” page is being set up where you will be able to read about the proposed projects and the progress with their implementation
Control of Dogs
We have seen an unacceptable increase in incidents of dog fouling over the last few months. Dog owners are reminded of their responsibility in clearing up after their dogs, even when on the sports pitch which is used by many children for informal play. We can all report dog fouling on the Dorset For You website by clicking here . Doing this will alert the authority to the problem which will trigger more frequent visits from the Dog Warden.
Yetminster Community Sports Club
The tennis court is available for members to make bookings, the croquet club is meeting (socially distanced on Wednesday and Friday afternoons and the club is open.
