Chance for Greenhill Campaigners to Talk with Council Over Chalet Sell-Off
7:20am 3rd April 2014
(Updated 7:21am 3rd April 2014)
You can have your say on the future of Greenhill Chalets in Weymouth today (Thursday 3rd April).
The Borough Council are looking for a buyer to lease out the properties.
They think a new operator will have more money to look after the chalets properly.
There's a chance to talk to the borough council's property team about the proposals at drop-in sessions this afternoon between 3pm and 7pm at The Mulberry Centre in Weymouth.
There's another session tomorrow (Friday 4th April) from noon until 4pm at the same location.
Weymouth & Portland Borough Council Finance and Assets brief holder Cllr Peter Chapman said: "We realise that the Greenhill Chalets and associated facilities are a popular asset.
"We believe a new operator will be able to maintain and improve the Greenhill Chalets and associated facilities to a better standard than the council can afford to. The proposals are aimed at securing the long term future of the chalets and preserving the public amenities and access to the associated facilities."
"Anyone interested in the site is welcome to come and see the proposals at the drop-ins and also submit their comments.
"Consultation findings will inform our decision when Management Committee comes to look at this in the summer."
