Plans for Shire Hall and New Park and Ride Discussed in Dorchester

Shire Hall

8:51am 19th June 2012

Plans to transform the Shire Hall into a tourist attraction and to build a new Park and Ride in Dorchester are under the spotlight today (Tuesday 19th June).

Both will be discussed at West Dorset District Council's Executive Committee.

It was revealed earlier this month that plans were in the pipeline to turn Dorchester's famous Shire Hall into a multimillion pound heritage attraction.

The Grade 1 listed building that includes the Old Crown Court and Cells would become a visitor centre.

Also on today's agenda the latest on Dorchester's proposed 500 space Park and Ride site near stadium roundabout.

Members of West Dorset District Council will consider proposals at the meeting.
