Weymouth Eye plans approved

Weymouth and Portland Borough Council has approved plans for a 53-metre high observation wheel to be built as part of the Festival Pier redevelopment in Weymouth.

The £3 million Weymouth Eye, to be operated by Merlin Entertainments, is expected to be completed in time for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, for which Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour will be the host venue for the sailing events.
