There are two things Dorchester needs. Firstly and probably the less important of the two is that Dorchester needs a bus station. Having a bus station would in the long run reduce traffic through vital streets such as Trinity street and High east/High west street. Busses pulling over on trinity street constantly hold up traffic and reduce the width of the orad whilst park. By having a centralised bus station, it would make bus journeys more efficient and easier to find a bus as aposed to walking to and from the two "main" bus stops in trinity street and the county museum.
The second and more important issue is housing. Dorchester desperately needs more affordable housing. Although there are more than 2,000 dwellings are currently being built in Poundbury, most of them are unaffordable to the average family. There are several sites that the council own around the town yet nothing is currently being done to build new dwellings.
Admittedly it will help a bit however with the rate that the town centre is expanding with projects such as the charles street development and ofcourse brewery square, it won't be enough to support the constantly growing population. How can a town such as dorchester expand and gain momentum when there isn't enough affordable housing?
