Rural Roads

grottygrimstone1Dorset's landscape is one of the most precious and varied in the country.  Unfortunately over recent years, traffic volume, urbanisation, and speed has increased, resulting in concerns over environmental impacts and safety on our rural roads and villages.

This section of the site introduces you to reports, Dorset Rural Roads Protocol, and the Dorset AONB toolkit to help guide and encourage new ideas and methods to tackle these sensitive issues, and enhance the local distinctiveness of our rural roads and villages, without compromising on safety.

 

As part of our Dorset rural roads, we have special if not unique Dorset traditional fingerposts.  The Dorset AONB have a passion for these treasures and we know you do too.  To help us preserve this part of our heritage and retain our local distinctiveness. You could help us by becoming a Fingerpost Champion and be part of the Dorset Fingerpost project.
