Wyke Development Could Block New Road

Ferrybridge Inn

Campaigners are making fresh appeals to protect a Weymouth route, which could be turned into a bypass that would boost the local economy.

Plans for a housing development on the site of the Ferrybridge Inn in Wyke Regis would create a huge obstacle for the potential route, according to the Portland Community Partnership.

Their Chairman, Andy Matthews says West Dorset District Council has to look bigger picture before making a decision:

He told Wessex FM: "One of the problems we have in our area is we tend to have these adhoc proposals coming forward without looking at the wider economic benefits sometimes."

"It's time now with the economic drive and push from the Local Enterprise Partnership we did to revisit these plans and not make a short-term decision."

West Dorset District Council will make a decision on the plans in February or March.
