Have your say on developing Weymouth’s Seafront Masterplan
Weymouth Town Council is developing a Seafront Masterplan and is inviting residents, local businesses, and visitors to have their say on the draft proposals by completing a survey which launches today.
The current draft Seafront Masterplan drawn up by HemingwayDesign makes a range of recommendations to enhance Weymouth’s seafront. The town council now wants to hear people’s views on key issues such as enhancing the Promenade, catering facilities along the Promenade, pedestrian access to the Promenade and beach, enhancing Greenhill and Preston beach for recreation and enjoyment, and facilities and activities for young people.
As some of the recommendations can only be taken forward by partner organisations, including Dorset Council, Weymouth Town Council is today launching a consultation (Tuesday 25th July to Tuesday 15th August) on the specific areas where it can make a difference and is asking people to submit their views and ideas in a short survey.
Cllr Ryan Hope, Chair of Services Committee, said: “The draft Seafront Masterplan proposals cover the Promenade walkway along the seafront near the Pavilion end of the beach up to Overcombe in the north. When people were asked for initial views on this last year, we were really encouraged by the response that was received. Now we want to fine-tune the proposals so we have a clear plan of action for what Weymouth Town Council can deliver for residents and visitors.
“So, whatever your age, we need you to give us your views in our short survey which runs for three weeks from today until August 15th. Go online to have your say.”
Once the survey closes, the results will be analysed, and a report will go to the Council’s Services Committee.
