Have your say TODAY on Weymouth's new lights

You can have your say on a £200,000 project to create a new lighting scheme along Weymouth Promenade later.

A drop-in session is being held at the Weymouth Sea Life Park from 5 until 8pm.

Some residents want a return of the fairy lights that were there before but project leaders will take everyone's views into account.

The first session was held a couple of weeks ago and over 120 people went along to share their views about the project.

Project co-ordinator Natalie Poulter said: "It was great to see so many people attend the first community engagement session which took place on Friday 25th August on the esplanade.

"Understanding the thoughts and feelings of the local community and visitors is essential to this project and will help the project team get the right result for Weymouth."

Here are the details of the next two drop-in sessions:

- TODAY - Wednesday 13th September at the Weymouth SEA LIFE Park, DT4 7SX at 5-8pm (parking at the Beach car park as Lodmoor Country Park is closed for Ironman).

- Monday 25th September at the Park Community Centre, Chelmsford St, DT4 7HP at 4.30-7.30pm (on-street parking is free of charge for one hour and the closest pay & display parking is on the seafront).
