Have you had your say on the new homes for Purbeck?

Each household should have received a questionnaire through the post entitled ‘NEW HOMES FOR PURBECK have your say’.

Every person is entitled to complete their own questionnaire. Lots of people in each of the affected areas of Purbeck are filling in their own individual questionnaires. The total number of questionnaires is critical in making sure PDC received as wide a range of answers as possible and as many answers as possible.

If you want to get an extra one for each person in your house, then either call Freephone 0800 533 5386 or email purbeck@publicperspectives.co.uk and they will send you extra copies.

And don’t forget the drop-ins for more information (details below):
