Welcome to LymeForward
LymeForward is the local area strategic partnership for Lyme Regis, Charmouth, Uplyme and the surrounding area. LymeForward and other LAPs are part of the West Dorset Partnership.
The Partnership encourages local people, groups and organisations to work together for the good of the whole community. Through consultation and mutual support LymeForward aims to improve the community's economic and environmental sustainability. This is your chance to have a say in the future of your community, to get involved in delivering solutions - and to have fun!
The minutes from the June meeting are now available here.
The next quarterly meeting will be at 2pm on Thursday October 13th 2016 in The Woodmead Halls, Lyme Regis. Members will be voting in the 3 member representatives to the LymeForward CIC Steering Group at this meeting. A summary of the representatives' role is here.
The next Health and Wellbeing meeting will be held in December. Our cookery classes have been a great sucess - David Jones has written a lovely article in the Uplyme News about his experience when we spent the day at Trill Farm with Chris Onions in his kitchen.
Local Area Partnership
West Dorset District Council has agreed to fund Local Area Partnerships for at least another 12 months; they will be contributing £6,000: for LymeForward, a reduction of £5,000 per annum. LymeForward has entered into a new agreement with WDDC to deliver community planning.
Lyme Regis Town Council has agreed to fund LymeForward for the next 4 years at £15,000 per annum. This will enable LymeForward to continue to deliver support to the local community.
Coastal Community Team (CCT) News
Following on from the sucess last year in drawing in nearly £60,000 from the Coastal Revival Fund, the Coastal Communities Fund Round 4 has been announced.
Following a sucessful first stage bid, our collaboration with Dorset Coast Forum (a £12M bid) means we are now able to submit a final application with DCF for the Devon Way Path upgrade. This £200k project would offer an exciting opportunity to significantly upgrade to path between Uplyme and Lyme along the river Lym.
We are also working on a feasibility project for seafront enhamncements to Charmouth, including new access onto the beach from the promenade.
