2017 Plans for Port Royal, updated input from VGS

latest on the Scoping Study

A posting from a couple of days ago summarised where we’re at with the Scoping Study:
Futures Forum: Plans for Port Royal: anticipating a Regeneration Board >> consultants meet Scoping Study Reference Group and start gathering evidence

The consultants have been given the Vision Group’s Community Engagement Brief of 2012 – a report which was in fact already started in 2008:
Vision Group for Sidmouth – Community Engagement Brief

A newer, updated set of evidence has just been submitted to the consultants from the Vision Group:
Evidence submitted for the Port Royal Scoping Study – vgs – feb17.pdf

This considers several areas of interest, including a summary of the ‘facts and figures’ (with fresh information not available in 2012), a look at the historic issues and consideration of the options (many of which are clearly less viable than five years ago):
