Olympic Planning Permission – at last!

Its been reported today that Weymouth and Portland councilors unanimously voted for fencing and other temporary structures to be allowed at Weymouth’s ticketed spectator site. (Porta Loos to me and you)

The decision by members of Weymouth and Portland Borough Council‘s planning and traffic committee means the London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG) will be able to accommodate 4,600 spectators a day during the Olympic period when sailing events are hosted in the borough.

A unanimous vote also granted LOCOG temporary use of the new Chesil Cove Federation Primary School and Zero C housing development at the former Officer’s Field site on Portland as an Olympic Village for athletes and officials

Call me syndical but one very important question springs to mind – tickets have been on sale for this venue since round one of the ballot – so was it not a forgone decision that LOCOG would do whatever they wanted?  If permission was turned down would refunds of been issued??

Airport Drop Off Charges

Well well

It did not take long for Exeter Airport to jump on the band wagon!

They are now charging £1 to drop off passengers!  Still its cheaper than Bouremouth currently £2.50!!!!!!!!!

How long before Gatwick and Heathrow do the same?

The World Rolls into Town

There is great excitement as World class Olympic sailors are converging on Weymouth for an Olympic Test Event from 30th July to 14th August.

 Athletes from all teams will get the chance to test the waters, and sample the local hospitality before next year’s main event!

Roads Re Open!!!!

There are loud cheers and some confusion in Weymouth this evening as work on the Weymouth Transport Package draws to a close.

 Cones are being cleared, and traffic lights switched on – one question will it all work – only time will tell.

A Postcard From Weymouth

As Weymouth is an Olympic Venue – we will be hosting the sailing events – and as such we have been suffering whilst transport infrastructure upgrades have taken place.

Some witty sole has produced this memento Click Here so that when we are all benefiting from the improvements we will not forget the disruption!
