Dorchester, Dorset: Charles Street Archaeology Petition

From Culture 24

English Heritage and archaeologists express concern as thousands sign petition over Dorset development.

"Extremely rich archaeological heritage" could be lost on Dorset site of Roman finds as petition receives thousands of signatures

Dorset Echo report


"Campaigners welcome English Heritage stance on Charles Street" - Dorset Echo

"English Heritage says it cannot support the scheme in its current form due to the risk of substantial harm to archaeology of 'national significance' beneath the site. It also states that if the council was minded to approve the planning application for the second phase, it would be obliged to ask the Secretary of State to call in the application for a public enquiry".
