The map below is the area for the Sutton Poyntz Neighbourhood, approved by Weymouth & Portland Borough Council. You can zoom in to see the details of the boundary.

On the west, north and east, the boundary is drawn along the border between Weymouth & Portland Borough and West Dorset District. Note that the top eight houses on Plaisters Lane are in West Dorset - a constraint built in to the Localism Act means that these 8 houses could not be included in the Sutton Poyntz neighbourhood, but these households were included an all the consultations apart from the final Referendum.

The southern boundary does not have any obviously 'correct' line, as there is no legal or historical boundary between Sutton Poyntz and Preston - they were part of the same ecclesiastical Parish and have always been part of the same administrative unit. We chose a boundary close to the narrowest point of the Jordan valley, between Winslow and Rimbury, which is the line traditionally taken to separate Sutton Poyntz and Preston. The boundary was drawn to include most of the land in the 'green wedge' - the Important Open Gap defined in the Borough's Local Plan, which separates Sutton Poyntz from Preston and thereby makes Sutton Poyntz a village. This part of the boundary was revised at the Society AGM on 14 April 2016 to include additional houses along Puddledock Lane with Sutton Poyntz postcodes.
