LF CIC 2016

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 October meeting are now available here.

The next quarterly meeting will be at 2pm on Thursday March 16th 2017 in The Woodmead Halls, Lyme Regis.

Latest News

Thank you to everyone who joined us on December 13th to hear Dr Forbes Watson (Chair of our Dorset NHS Clinical Commisioning Group) and sarah Howarth (CCG involve team) talk about the proposals they have that will effect every one of us over the next few years in Dorset as they introduce changes to the way we access and receive our health services. The Dorset CCG consultation on these proposals runs until mid February and this will help you to provide an informed response to the consultation. Please encourage everyone to complete a questionnaire - as Forbes says, it will make a difference.

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. 

Thank you
