Dorset Council are consulting on the proposed closure of Unnamed Road, Witchampton in the vicinity of the Witchampton Scout Hut (in both directions), a distance of approximately 20 metres. The closure has been requested to allow South West Water to investigate loss of water pressure in the area. These works are programmed to commence from 24th March 2021 until 30th March 2021.

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 notice below (or here as a PDF) shows the extent of the closure and the diversion route.

If you have any concerns about this proposal, please contact Tom Faulkner, ( by 15th March 2021.
