Your Views Needed on Portland's Heritage Areas


7:39am 25th June 2014

Portlanders are being asked to have their say about areas of historic importance on the Island.

The Borough Council want to know what you think about studies on the character of places like The Grove and Underhill.

They're conservation areas - which are places that have special architectural or historic value and are protected to make sure people can enjoy them in years to come.

Ian Roebuck, Weymouth & Portland Borough Council brief holder for Environment and Sustainability, said: "This is a great opportunity for people to have their say on areas of historic importance on Portland.

"We value the public's feedback and the comments will be used to shape the final report."

The consultation is open from now to Monday 4 August 2014 and you can view the studies and make comments by clicking here.

Studies and comment forms are also available at the Royal Breakwater Hotel, Castletown; The Paper Shop, Fortuneswell and Tophill Library, Straits.

Officers from the borough council will also be on hand to answer questions on the studies at:

- St George's Centre, Reforne on 25 June 2014 from 9am to 7pm
- St John's Church Hall, Fortuneswell on 2 July 2014f rom 9am to 7pm.

For more information email planning@westdorset-weymouth.gov.uk or phone the borough council's Assistant Conservation Officer Shelley Saltman on 01305 252388.
