ALTHOUGH more than 230 residents in Lyme Regis have called on West Dorset District Council to compulsorily purchase the derelict former Three Cups Hotel, in Broad Street, the Dorchester-based authority has told the Herald such a move would be a "last resort". Owners Palmers Brewery announced redevelopment plans 24 hours before a public meeting was staged last Friday.
