Para. 8.55: Milborne Port. The document acknowledges a "self-containment" issue in Milborne Port. This should not be underestimated. With dwindling employment opportunities in the village and extremely compromised public transport links to nearby towns offering employment, further housing in the community is highly likely to place an increased burden on the medieval road network in the village itself and the wider highways network as the inhabitants of new housing will necessarily have to drive to work.
