Weymouth Harbourside survey

Weymouth residents are being asked to have their say on proposals to enhance the harbour area for families, hospitality businesses and active travel. 

We will be redesigning the carriageway in Custom House Quay to improve drainage. This gives an opportunity to review the public realm to improve conditions for walking, cycling and areas for sitting out, while retaining access to businesses in the harbour. 

These proposals do not include pedestrianisation of the harbourside. 

Take the survey

The survey is open from Wednesday 13 January to Wednesday 24 February 2021.

How could Custom House Quay better work as a mixed-use environment? 

The proposals aim to improve the public space along Custom House Quay to create a safer space for walking and cycling, enhance the area for outside dining and improve air quality by reducing traffic along the route.

There are a number of proposals being suggested to create a better mixed-use area along Custom House Quay between South Parade and St Mary Street. 

Many of these proposals will require removing the 39 on-road 1hr parking spaces in the area:  

  • ​widening footways on both sides of the road

  • providing loading bays for harbour businesses and vessels

  • installing a contra-flow, on-road cycle lane (towards Pavilion) - cyclists heading towards Town Bridge will be in the road with the one-way flow of traffic. Cyclists heading towards The Pavilion will use a dedicated cycle lane, which will be against the flow of traffic. 

  • provision of dedicated disabled parking bays

  • providing additional outdoor seating space for hospitality businesses

  • provision of cycle parking

  • installation of benches, planters and safety bollards

This work will be funded by the £438,000 Department for Transport Active Travel Fund money awarded to us.
