Public space in West Bay to get a makeover

George pub west bay

Published at 10:13am 16th April 2019.

Work's due to start next week (23rd) on redeveloping a public space in West Bay.

The Coastal Communities Fund are paying for the improvements outside the George Pub.

They'll be new flooring and artist-designed seating.

During the works, an area of the George Car Park will be closed to the public, and there will be no motorcycle parking available in George Square as it will be cordoned off for the works.

Alternative motorcycle parking at East Pier will be provided at weekends and bank holidays only.

Motorcyclists are being asked to respect the signage in place and find alternative space in the main car parks at other times

Sally King, Project Lead from Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty said "We would like to thank businesses, residents and visitors for their understanding and patience whilst the works are carried out. It's unfortunate that some disruption is inevitable for a large project like this, but the team have worked hard to minimise it where possible."

"We think the re-vamped space will be well worth it when it's finished, and will provide a lovely space in the centre of West Bay to soak in the atmosphere of everything this beautiful area has to offer."
