Council Has No Plans To Reopen Weymouth TIC

6:55am 8th October 2014

Wessex FM's been told the Borough Council has no plans to reopen Weymouth TIC.

They say a new Tourist Information Centre for Weymouth would need to be proposed and operated by another organisation.

The confirmation comes after Borough Councillor Rachel Rogers says she was misquoted in the press.

Councillor Rogers who is the brief holder for tourism told Wessex FM she does think a tourist point is needed;

"I recognise very much there is a need for improved tourist information in the town centre.  Yes, it's true that lots of people can access that information online but many of our visitors don't have the capacity to access that information yet."

"It's one of the things that has been raised with me most since I took over as tourism brief holder in the summer.  We are in negotiation with a number of partners at the moment to provide improved provision as from next summer but no firm decision has been made yet."
