Lyme Town Council committee will debate options in open session because of the high level of interest

The future of the Monmouth Beach area at Lyme Regis will be discussed in public by town councillors.

Residents are being invited to sit in on the important meeting of the Monmouth Beach Car Park Assets Working Group in The Guildhall on Tuesday, March 22, at 7pm.

Working groups are usually closed to the public, but councillors have agreed to hold an open meeting because of the high level of public interest in the area.

Lyme Regis Town Council owns a significant part of Monmouth Beach car park and the surrounding area, which it leases to other organisations.

This includes land used by the power boat club, the bowling club, the boat building academy, the trailer park, the gig club, and West Dorset District Council.

Councillors in the last administration agreed to carry out a review of the town council-owned assets in-and-around Monmouth Beach.

The working group meeting next week will be the first time the new council administration will consider the future use of these assets.

Any recommendations from the working group will be formally considered by the full council or one of its committees.
