England | 2 lcoal councils back proposal for NP status for Dorest & Devon Coasts

Backing has been given to support a request for National Park status for the Dorset and Devon coast.

Weymouth and Portland Borough councillors agreed the move despite hearing that in other areas national park status had increased the number of second and holiday homes, pushed up prices and made even basic planning issues difficult.

But promoter of the idea Richard Brown, speaking during the public session, claimed the status would bring in Government money, protect the environment, and lead to a better response to local housing needs.
