Weymouth Wonderland

help needed building winter accommodation

Would you like to have a seaside break over the Christmas period? The camp against the A50 Weymouth "Relief" Road would like help building more warm accommodation. Despite Dorset Council agreeing to evict the camp, no court proceedings have occurred, seeming to confirm local rumours that the ownership of the land the camp is occupying is under dispute. This campaign is very winnable, as there is no economic or strategic reason for the road, and it is hugely destructive. It goes through ancient woodland, dissects the Littlemore Housing Estate, and goes through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
