No, no, no, the proposed development alongside New Look, etc is not a retail park.

Only in October last year, Weymouth Town Council objected to the development; even the mayor said it was a no-brainer.

The Local Plan designated the park for light industry allowing for well-paid full-time employment.

This development is another way of putting a nail in the town centre’s coffin, businesses that have been working throughout the pandemic. It also increases traffic use.

Councillors – insist that the developers come up with what we need, not what is an easy way to make money at our long term expense.
