RESIDENTS remained cautiously optimistic over fresh multi-million plans to regenerate Weymouth’s Brewers Quay.

Plans to redevelop the attraction were on show at Weymouth Museum yesterday afternoon. Developers displayed an application that will bring flats, shops and restaurants to the area.

As part of the redevelopment, there would be a permanent home for the Weymouth Museum and additional space for indoor tourist and cultural attractions.

Homes are also being considered to replace Newtons Road car park, which sits behind the site. This would help finance the Brewers Quay redevelopment.

Whilst this exists as a separate application, Brewers Quay Investments LLP has said one application cannot work without the other.

Residents who live near the car park previously told the Echo they would be against new housing on the site.

Some also raised concerns where cruise ship passengers would be able to drop off passengers from coaches.

The scheme to redevelop the car park into housing has been named Brewery Reach.

It would include six three-bed town houses and 12 two-bed apartments with dedicated parking.

Richard Strode, a partner at Brewers Quay Investments LLP said: “There have been a few concerns which would you would expect but on the whole I would say 75 per cent of people have been supportive. There have been some concerns over the loss of the coach drop off place but we are looking into other possible solutions for that.”

Brewers Quay has been the subject of development plans in the past. A £15m proposal, which included plans for a hotel, was submitted in 2011 but failed to progress.

The building remained closed between February 2011 and March 2013. It reopened following the success of pop-up shops during the Olympics.

It currently houses the Brewers Quay Emporium and Italian restaurant Il Porto, among other businesses.

Mr Strode added: “The building by itself is a very difficult investment. When people see what state it’s in they understand the predicament of the building.

“Hopefully this is the solution that will get some much needed investment.”

A planning application is expected to be submitted this autumn.

Residents have their say and help shape plan for the borough’s future

RESIDENTS in Weymouth have been helping shape a ‘masterplan’ for the town centre.

Their feedback will help Weymouth and Portland Borough Council develop the area over the next 10 years.

The council held pop-up events on Thursday and Friday on the Esplanade.

Residents, visitors, and people who work in the town were asked to identify their three main priorities using stickers.

Priorities were listed under categories that included: retail and economy, land use and community, environment and built heritage, and transport and movement.

Residents were keen for the plan to recognise the importance of summer holiday trade, and think of ways to make the town more family friendly in the evenings.

Work on preparing planning guidance for the town will be carried out in four stages.

This stage is about looking at priorities identified by previous studies, forming the basis of the key themes.

The next stage will be looking defining a vision for the town centre.

Council spokesman for economic regeneration Ray Nowak said the events had produced a fair spread of comments.

He said: “We had quite a positive response. We have had a number of questions.

“It’s had a reasonable response but I think there will be more footfall and more people participating, which is what we want.”

The next pop-up events will take place on August 26 and August 27 in New Bond Street, outside Debenhams.

Whilst I agree the the site requires redevelopment, I would not like to see the loss of a car park to build houses. Parking is already a nightmare around this area....if they want to build some nice houses and shops with parking let them buy the council offices site next to the harbour and move them where they belong....on an industrial estate.....

Yes can't argue with Mask & Snorkel taking away this Car Park is daft, it is the only one on that side of the Quay. All the other businesses will lose out.
They have got a great dropping off place for the Coaches from Portland Port here so that the Coaches do not have to go into Town, lose that, and it will annoy everyone. "Looking into that" is just not good enough I am afraid its waffle. I expect the large will the crush the same as normal.

Was Brewers Quay Investments LLC the lot who closed the place down in the first place, and then let it deteriorate, and now they saying "oh dear, you ought to see the state it's in"? And they don't think that this Residential development will increase the traffic in the area? And that taking away the car park won't exacerbate things in that regard? Should we take anything that say seriously for one moment?

Discussion about development may be premature.
Condor Ferries have signed a 10 year non-exclusive agreement with Jersey Ports, allowing the company to operate passenger, vehicle and freight services until 2024. It is also announced that Guernsey's government have agreed to extend a "memorandum of understanding" with Condor until 2018. These new arrangements made public yesterday, may come as a bit of a blow to Weymouth and Portland Borough Council as the way is now clear for Condor to proceed with their plan to bring into service their new 102 meter trimaran for the UK to Channel Islands routes.
The reason for the concern in Weymouth, is the continuing controversy and discussions regarding the required improvements to Pier 1 at the Weymouth ferry terminal. The improvements to Pier 1 will require a £10million investment programme for the upgrade and expansion and may take up to three years to complete, just to provide a berth large enough to accommodate the new ferry. The improvements and repairs to Pier 3, which caused so much disruption before and during the 2012 Olympics, were late in completion, cost in excess of £4.5 million and resulted in Condor operating out of Poole for almost two years with the resulting loss of income for hotels, guest houses and tourism generally in Weymouth. It is now clearly evident, and was predicted by some commentators at the time, that even with the time and expenditure poured into the Pier 3 repairs, the new berth would only be able to accommodate the existing Condor Vitesse, Express or Rapide.

Condor's original plan was to have the new ferry in operation during October of this year. However, the delay in concluding the agreement with the Channel Islands indicates that the new ship will not be in operation until 2015. Which ever way it goes, there is no possibility of the new ferry operating out of Weymouth in the foreseeable future, and Poole will once again benefit from any extra tourist income that may be generated. Condor have already indicated that the introduction of a new larger ferry , will result in two of the existing fast ferries being taken out of service. This may come as another blow to Weymouth.

With the introduction of the new ship and two of the smaller ferries being taken out, the overall capacity for the transport of passengers and vehicles will be reduced. As the trend of tourism to Jersey remains in decline over recent years, this may not be a problem to the States of Jersey or Guernsey, but it is certainly the case that Weymouth will feel a difference.

Maybe not politically correct but reality. Lose parking and you lose tourist trade. Also, many locals just go elsewhere these days with all the town parking shortages.
Maybe our council ought to try being car friendly for once and actually attract folks to come here.

Don't know what the fuss is about, parking is pretty easy in Weymouth, a bit harder for about six weeks in summer but there are always spaces.

Found this via Google, interesteing to read ---

The Entry in the Companies House results page for a Company Search:
'Status: Active - Proposal to Strike off'
often results from the non filing of the annual return, (not the accounts), or it has failed to submit the necessary documentation to Companies House and the Registrar takes the view that it is defunct.

The Company itself may have applied to be struck of as it has ceased trading for more than three months or it is not longer needed.

Not the best way to end a Company if Tax is due, as HMRC want their pound of flesh and will not consent, with possible adverse consequences should the directors look to set up in the future.

Please don't let us lose any more car parking spaces. It's high time our council realised that most of this town's visitors arrive by and move around by car. Maybe not politically correct but reality. Lose parking and you lose tourist trade. Also, many locals just go elsewhere these days with all the town parking shortages.
Maybe our council ought to try being car friendly for once and actually attract folks to come here.
Don't know what the fuss is about, parking is pretty easy in Weymouth, a bit harder for about six weeks in summer but there are always spaces.
I agree. I never have any difficulty finding somewhere. But it can be expensive, with car parks charging summer season prices even in the winter. On one occasion last February I worked out that it would have been cheaper to drive and watch a film in Dorchester ( petrol included). But this is an issue of cost, not availability.

Found this via Google, interesteing to read ---

The Entry in the Companies House results page for a Company Search:
'Status: Active - Proposal to Strike off'
often results from the non filing of the annual return, (not the accounts), or it has failed to submit the necessary documentation to Companies House and the Registrar takes the view that it is defunct.

The Company itself may have applied to be struck of as it has ceased trading for more than three months or it is not longer needed.

Not the best way to end a Company if Tax is due, as HMRC want their pound of flesh and will not consent, with possible adverse consequences should the directors look to set up in the future.
There are severe late filing penalties for the accounts but these would not be payable as the Company would not exist and likely would not file accounts if the Registrar were to 'Strike Off'"
Could it be that Brewers Quay Investments LLP are getting ready to sell on and run asap if they get the planning permission they need? They may have developed the plans but I don't think they have any intention of actually carrying them out themselves
