Brewers Quay Redevelopment With Borough Council

Brewers Quay

Published at 9:18am 27th December 2014.

Plans to convert and restore the historic Brewers Quay building in Hope Square in Weymouth have now been submitted to the Borough Council.

The multi million pound regeneration project by Brewers Quay Investments LLP could bring new leisure and tourism facilities and new housing to the town.

They include a new home for Weymouth Museum and shops and restaurants fronting onto Hope Square.

The developers also want to build 6 town houses and 12 apartments on Newtons Road Car Park which would pay for the scheme.

Alastair Ross, a partner at Brewers Quay Investments LLP said: "We are delighted with the overwhelming level of support we have received for this development. We had 450 people attend our exhibitions with 86% of the feedback forms submitted showing that people supported all or some of the proposals.  We are really grateful for the feedback and are pleased with the changes we have made. These include moving the location of the museum to improve access and circulation as well as increasing its size to allow for improved facilities such as a gift shop, dedicated lift, workshop in the basement and additional storage."

Richard Strode, another partner at Brewers Quay Investments LLP said: "We are also giving the museum the lower and upper vat rooms, where brewing took place, thus allowing much of the brewing equipment to be accessible to the public. We have also improved access to the proposed restaurant from Hope Square and reconfigured the internal layout of the Brewers Quay building in response to conservation and heritage comments.

"The redevelopment of Newtons Road car park into six town houses and twelve apartments is crucial in funding the main Brewery Quay redevelopment. The historic building has been neglected by successive owners over many years and is in urgent need of refurbishment."
