Absolutely Brilliant! Thanks for posting this. Am particularly interested in the Great field as it backs on to my home. Can any one explain the plan of the great field, ie which markings represent what (grassland, trees shrubs etc). Would be interested to know what we might be getting on 'our' bit of it. Thanks.
Also any ideas when more work might be done on the great field?
I'm undertaking a dissertation on sustainable insulating materials. Poundbury is often mentioned with reference to sustainability but is it only the planning that is sustainable? Are your buildings insulated with sheep's wool or hemp or are they packed full of carbon intensive materials like mineral wool and polyisocyanurate? Is so, are the new phases of development going to be built using more sustainable materials? I would be very grateful to know the details of the architects or developers.
Roland, I have some views which I have already given to another researcher. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Anybody else interested in the Master Plan should note that it makes very little provision for rural access on foot or by bike. Check out the Ramblers Camapign at: campaign.southdorsetramblers.org.uk/campaign/page10.html Ironically, the bypass which provided the space for the Poundbury Development is now its noose. From a rambler's view, Poundbury is a ghetto!

The planning application for Phases 3 and 4 are now with West Dorset District Council, application 1/D/09/1363. You may inspect it at WDDC offices and it will soon be available on line. Supporting Document 20 deals with the countryside access provisions. It contains the proposals, plus annexes containing the correspondence with the farmer, Ramblers, and, interestingly, Poundbury Pathfinders.
It falls well short of providing rural access to the SW of the Bypass and so unless you act to change the Duchy's mind, all you dog walkers, joggers and cyclists who love to visit Maiden Castle will have to continue sharing the narrow, unmaintained road with the cars, coaches and occasional speed crazed hooligans who also use it.
Check out campaign.southdorsetramblers.org.uk/campaign/index.html for the latest news on the Ramblers' campaign to improve your access to Maiden Castle. The 'Update' page provides lots of useful background references and the articles contain useful addresses. So if you care about rural access and are incensed by the selfishness of the Duchy in denying this despite the huge gains in capital they have made, get writing ( or typing).

I can now confirm that a special meeting of this Council's Planning and Environment Committee will be held at 7.00pm on Wednesday 30th September, 2009 in the Council Chamber, Municipal Building, Dorchester to discuss the outline planning application now submitted for phases 3 & 4 at Poundbury.
As well as members from the Town Council's Planning Committee present there will also be representatives from the Duchy of Cornwall and Mr John Hoskin, the farmer on whose land the application abuts.
Hello. Nice to meet you. my name is sooro. I am a student from Kyung-Hee Univ in Korea. There is a scholarship system that school sends students to a foreign country in our school. . So we set a plan to visit and study the city, Poundbury, which is famous as a human-new town. But before we go, we need documentary evidence that Poundbury permit us to visit. If we can go to Poundbury, where is being developed without hurting green area, and people never get stress from traffic and can go everywhere from place to place in village by foot, it would be great.
*Date of Visiting: from 21th Feb 2010 to 2nd Feb 2010
<Detail of what we're going to study> -Comparing new towns in Korea with foreign new towns which is successfully applied New Urbanism. -Knowing advantages of reproduction city and studying problems of the reproduction system running in our country. - Investigating a success point how this city brought a nice future by going back to past, nature and neighbor in open area. - Knowing a concept of the city that things from past could be new.
So we ask Poundbury for sending paper evidence or a reply message that Poundbury permit us to visit your village. (* until Oct. 14) Expecting a response to this letter. Thank you for reading.

Following Oliver Letwin MP support for the Poundbury Rural Access Campaign, LibDem candidate for West Dorset Dr Sue Farrant has also voiced her opinion that the Duchy should implement the 2006 Poundbury Development Brief in full. Check out:
I was in form 3 or 4 of Pen Tip School Llanelli age about 8 or 9 and the teacher said we were having an architecture competition.
We had to design a village and so I designed on with a pub in the middle on a spider's web type system with a sort of town wall idea and the pub was split in to two halves by a straight line but both sides were traditional higglty pigglty pubs.
So I got the prise and wrote a contract for the money.
"I give permission for these buildings to be built on my land because I don't have any."
Then I was told by teacher to change the full stop to a comer and add the word land so it says...
"I give permission for these buildings to be built on my land because I don't have any land. For this I receive the remuneration of one pound".
I was given a pound note.
Prince Charles rushed to the Daily Mail to say had doubled the size of his estate by buying it off an eccentric for a pound.
Actually I'm the King and it is I who decided the meaning of the contract and there is no court in the land that may contradict me.
BECAUSE those buildings are built on my land it is proven to be my land.
And Prince Charles has no permission to expand building on my land at Poundbury.
