It’s been a very busy month for the seafront masterplan in Swanage, with public consultation, outdoor school days, market stalls and photography exhibitions! The survey has now closed but had over 1,000 responses plus we have over 110 ideas pinned to our virtual ideas board which is fantastic and huge thanks to everyone who took part. During December 2022 we will be analysing the survey responses and during Jan-April 2023 we will be drafting the Seafront Masterplan. A further round of consultation on the draft masterplan will take place in April 2023.
Swanage Past, Present and Future – 150 people attend engagement event
We were delighted that our photography exhibition on 17th November to promote the Swanage Seafront Masterplan survey was well attended by over 150 people. The event explored the history and changes of the seafront, from 1880-2022. Virtual Swanage kindly allowed us to print photos from their website. Additionally, we had original postcards dating back to the Victorian age, kindly lent to us by Steve Wallis, Dorset Council’s Senior Archaeologist. It was useful to meet lots of local businesses, councillors, seafront users, and interested members of the public.
We’ve had over 200 entries to our competition to design a logo for the seafront masterplan. The winner will be announced very soon!
