New Plans For Brewers Quay To Go On Show
6:21am 8th August 2014
Multi million pound plans to convert Brewers Quay in Weymouth will go on display next week.
The plans include a home for Weymouth Museum, space for cultural attractions, shops, restaurants and new town centre homes.
Newtons Road car park is also down to be redeveloped for housing.
Richard Strode, a partner at Brewers Quay Investments LLP said: "We are really excited about our plans and are looking forward to sharing them with the community during August. The regeneration of Brewers Quay is long overdue and we are encouraged by the feedback we have received to date. People tell us they really want to see the building restored and more happening in Hope Square.
Alastair Ross, a fellow partner added: "Our plans include leisure facilities and much needed new homes, which we believe will attract more people into the area, creating new jobs and boosting Weymouth's economy."
David Riches, Company Secretary and a Director of the Museum Trust added: "We have been working with the building owners for some time and are delighted to see these plans coming together. The plans provide us with increased space and improved facilities such as a gift shop."
Following the exhibition, the team will be reviewing the feedback before submitting a planning application to Weymouth and Portland Borough Council in late September. If approved work could start later next year.
A public exhibition will be held in the museum at Brewers Quay, Hope Square on Friday 15 August, between 2.30pm and 7:30pm. Plans will also be available to view online at www.brewers-quay.com.
