RESIDENTS are invited today and tomorrow to have their say on one of the most prominent parts of Weymouth.

Consultation is being held today, Wednesday, and tomorrow into the future of the Pavilion peninsula on Weymouth seafront.

Weymouth & Portland Borough Council will use the public engagement to unveil proposals for development, which, it says, will 'breathe new life' into the peninsula.

Alongside the public exhibitions of the proposals, there will on Wednesday be a meeting for members of the business community.

The initial ideas prepared by the council include plans for new leisure facilities, hotels and restaurants, which the council says will complement the existing Jurassic Skyline tower and Pavilion Theatre, and boost plans to make Weymouth a year-round destination.

As well as aiming to secure additional tourism, harbour and leisure facilities, there will also be attractive landscaping and improved pedestrian walkways.

The proposals will be on display at the borough councill offices in Commercial Road from 5 - 8 pm today, Wednesday, and from 11 am to 2 pm tomorrow, Thursday. The exhibition boards will then be displayed at Weymouth Library until Friday, March 30.

An online survey will be available from 4 pm on March 14 until April 6 at

The council is aiming through the consultation to gauge and gather the view of residents on the proposals; these will then be developed further for an outline planning application later in the spring.
