Results of consultation on North Quay, Weymouth


We held consultation events on 16 and 17 January to find out what residents thought of our plans to develop the site of the former council offices at North Quay, Weymouth.

We presented a bid proposal comprising of 75 homes for rent and shared ownership and 50 homes exclusively for older people. The bid retains some parking for the wider community and a community facing commercial space associated with the older person housing.
