The planning application for the £60 million revamp of Dorchester's Charles Street car park can now be seen by the public.

This follows the two day public exhibition of the plans in December 2009.

The planning application by Simons Developments has now been registered by West Dorset District Council.

The scheme includes 23 shops, a new car park with 484 spaces, a hotel, 18 'affordable' homes and public toilets.

There are also offices and separate parking for the council and a potential library and adult education centre provided and paid for by Dorset County Council.

West Dorset District Council Leader Robert Gould said: "I am very pleased that everyone now has the chance to view the plans. People can now study the detail of the planning application and let us have their views."

To view and comment on the plans visit the district council's offices in High West Street, Dorchester, or visit:
