Weymouth Masterplan Starts To Take Shape
9:00am 28th November 2014
Weymouth residents and locals have been giving the borough council their ideas for its 'Masterplan' that will shape the future of the town centre.
Weymouth and Portland Borough Council held its second workshop to let local people have their say on how they want the plan to shape the town over the next 10 years.
Cllr Ray Nowak, Brief Holder for Economic Regeneration at Weymouth & Portland Borough Council, said: "This event has been fantastic in highlighting how engaged the community is with this important project."
"There has been lots of participation into the vision, which will enable us to be progressive in the ideas that come forward, and crucially change Weymouth for the better."
It was the second interactive workshop and examined in more detail some of the outcomes from the previous workshop held in early October, such as development potential of sites, travel and movement within the town and how different quarters could interact with one another.
The council is limited in the amount of investment it can make directly, but funding is hoped to be raised by working in partnership with developers and other partners such as the Dorset LEP.
A draft masterplan is expected to go out for further consultation in early 2015.
