Dorset Council have received an application from South West Water to close Unnamed Road, Long Crichel in the vicinity of The School House, Long Crichel (in both directions), a distance of approximately 50 metres. The closure has been requested to allow South West Water to install a new water service. These works are programmed to commence from 26th October 2020 until 30th October 2020.

South West Water 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 map in the image below (or in this downloadable PDF notice here) 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 Tom Faulkner ( by 9th October 2020.
