Broadwindsor GP CLT Site At Netherhay Lane

The Broadwindsor Group Parish Community Land Trust Board is absolutely delighted that they have taken a step closer to provision of 15 housing units for affordable rent for our Parish area, with the commencement of work on their development site at Netherhay Lane, Drimpton. Board members and the community have, over a period of 6 years, been very involved with the planning and design of these badly needed homes, and thy are very excited to see things actually happening at last! The CLT took ownership of the site on 24th November 2021. The main contractor CG Fry started work on 13th December, fencing off the site, creating the initial site office and facilities, removing turf and creating a working roadway before Christmas. From the beginning of January 2022, further ground condition surveys have been taking place to inform strategy on foundations, and initial trenches have been dug for drainage. The contract term is set for completion by April 2023.

Drainage works

CG Fry has agreed to the CLT Board’s request for 4-5 site Open Days to be organised across the construction period so that community members can visit the site and talk to staff members of both CG Fry and Abri (our Housing Association partner). They will let you know when these are scheduled in due course.

During the construction phase BGP CLT is running a community project, to include a series of music, arts and crafts events in Drimpton, which will be  open for participation to everyone in the Broadwindsor Parish area. This project is being coordinated for us by Andrew Pastor, with the help of Brian Hesketh and Francesca Hurrell.

To be eligible for one of these new homes, please apply now to join the Dorset Council Housing Register HERE notifying them of your interest in this CLT housing development in Drimpton.

The principal aim of the Broadwindsor Group Parish CLT is to provide a small development of affordable housing for rent to people with a direct connection to the villages within this Parish:

  • Blackdown
  • Broadwindsor
  • Burstock
  • Drimpton
  • Hursey
  • Kittwhistle
  • Seaborough

Does Your Horse Cough?

Clare MacLeod MSc RNutr Independent Equine Nutritionist has issued this warning to TAKE ACTION if your horse is coughing:
If your horse has a cough – even if it’s just a couple as you start trotting – take action.
Horses can have significant lung inflammation before they cough, so once they actually cough, there is a problem.
Any persistent cough needs veterinary attention, since its cause needs to be determined. If the cough is due to a dust/forage allergy, your horse may need medication as well as an environment change, and nowadays more effective inhaled medication is available, compared to the oral medication used in the past.
If your horse has dust/forage allergies (RAO, or recurrent airway obstruction, which used to be called COPD):
  • 🐴 Consider the amount of turnout (ideally maximise) and ventilation in the stable
  • 🐴 Ensure dust-free stable bedding and clean out the stable (including any banks) daily (no deep litter). Clean the walls and ceiling of the stable regularly
  • 🐴 Consider the forage both in the stable and outside in the pasture. Soak hay for at least 10 minutes, totally submerged, or feed haylage
  • 🐴 Add water to dampen dust in bucket feed
  • 🐴 Consider an antioxidant-rich respiratory supporting supplement

Never ignore a cough!
