PROPOSED TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF BRISTER END, YETMINSTER

Highways have received an application from DK Eastment to close BRISTER END, YETMINSTER at the junction with Downes Lane for a
distance of approximately 5 metres in a north westerley direction, a distance of approximately 5 metres. The closure has been
requested to allow DK Eastment to provide sewer connection. These works are programmed to commence from 16 August
2021 until 20 August 2021.

DK Eastment will publicise the road closure in a number of ways: they will place information boards on the road in this area to
inform the travelling public of the works; they will carry out a letter drop to local residents directly affected by the works; and they
will sign a vehicular diversion route using the local road network. The following map shows the extent of the closure and the
diversion route.

This document is for information only, however if you have any concerns about this proposal, please contact Samantha Paulley,
(trafficteam@dorsetcouncil.gov.uk) by 6 August 2021.

Dorset Highways have confirmed that the surface dressing schemes in and around Yetminster & Chetnole have been postponed. The Wessex Water works on Brister End are going ahead as planned and the new sewer connection private works following the water works are also confirmed.

Whilst, still some disruption to Yetminster, it is hoped this news relieves some of the concerns.
