The town council wants people’s views on how to improve Langmoor and Lister Gardens

The public is being invited to share ideas to improve the seafront gardens in Lyme Regis.

One of the town council’s major projects during its current term will be to regenerate the Langmoor and Lister Gardens.

Ideas to revamp the area include the building of a café and toilets, the re-instatement of the pitch and putt, a petanque area, a theatre bowl, and an outdoor gym.

A working group has been set up for this project, with the next meeting on Tuesday, June 21, at 7pm in the Guildhall, open to the public.

The town council wants ideas from the community to ensure there is something for everyone in the project.

The council has already applied for funding from the Tesco Bags of Help Programme for an outdoor gym, with more than 500 signatures collected from residents in support of this project.

Anyone who is unable to make the meeting but would like to give their ideas can call 01297 445175 or email enquiries@lymeregistowncouncil.gov.uk.

Further public meetings will be held in July and August to take the project forward.
