Palmers to ask public for views on Three Cups plans

Palmers to ask public for views on Three Cups plans


Palmers Brewery will be asking the public to comment on possible plans for The Three Cups at a special consultation day at the Pilot Boat in Lyme Regis on Wednesday 15 September.

The exhibition will be open to the public from 12.30pm to 9pm. Palmers’ representatives will be on hand to explain the various options under consideration and the public will be invited to comment.

The proposals include a ground floor retail use in The Three Cups building fronting Broad Street, additional retail units at the rear together with a new restaurant overlooking Lyme Bay, which could attract a celebrity chef.

Palmers’ architects are considering whether some letting rooms could be included within the scheme, offering accommodation to visitors. The plans will also need to incorporate residential units, which are essential to fund the multi-million pound cost of developing the site.

The brewery has spent more than seven months consulting with town and district councillors, planning officers and the Save The Three Cups group to find a future for the site that is both economically viable and benefits Lyme Regis.

John Palmer, managing director of Palmers Brewery, said: ‘We think we have found some potential ways forward for the site, but we want to share them with the people of Lyme Regis and hear what they have to say before we make any final decisions and submit a planning application.’
