Putton Lane pavement petition
After some years of fighting Dorset County Council's Highways Department for a pavement along Putton Lane from Willowbed to Brown's Crescent, an online petition was started by another resident. The petition was supported and advertised, which made the Council's management finally sit and pay attention. The pavement has been a success, and residents are now able to walk along Putton Lane without mindless drivers trying to illegally force dog walkers and children off the public highway. Road safety has of course greatly improved since Fry's site compound moved away from this section of Putton Lane.
