Our Objectives

The Society was founded in 1944 to serve the people of Weymouth, Portland and surrounding areas.  

We aim to stimulate public interest in the environment within the Weymouth & Portland area, particularly the built environment, and to promote higher standards of planning and architecture in the area.

We work to secure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of features of historic, public or natural interest in the area.


The Society monitors planning applications in the area, and makes observations and offers opinions to the local authorities.

We sponsor a series of  annual awards for the significant contributions to the built environment.

Regular meetings are arranged to hear talks and discuss current civic topics, and we  enjoy Society social events and visits to places of civic interest,

We also own and manage, on behalf of the local community, two great attractions in Weymouth, the Tudor House and the Nothe Fort (see below).

Visit our Planning pages to find out more about some of the key planning matters which are currently live. Please let us have your views, and help us to assist our hard working local Councillors by offering constructive comment from a cross section of the local community (us!) on a wide range of difficult to resolve planning issues.

Prominent amongst them at the moment is the Town Centre Masterplan (panel below).

Tudor House

Bequeathed to the Society in 1977 by local architect Walmsley Lewis, Tudor House is operated entirely by volunteers from within the Civic Society membership.
