Car rental business in Weymouth to expand

A car rental business, employing eight people, has been given permission to use part of the car park at Weymouth railway station.

Enterprise Rent-a-Car has been given planning consent for an office and a car wash bay to the western side of the rail line in the under-used car park adjacent to Jubilee Sidings.

The permission includes the use of up to 38 parking spaces.

The business says it will mainly deal with customers who are renting a vehicle because their own is off the road for a short period, or in for repair.

They claim it will mean few late night or early morning returns and few vehicles kept on site as the business generally delivers vehicles to customers own premises.

The permission allows the company to operate 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm on Saturday and 11am to 4pm on Sunday.
