Local Planning The Society monitors planning applications in the area, and makes observations and offers opinions to the local authorities. It endeavours to raise public awareness of developments which may involve threats to the enjoyment of local places and structures of historic or architectural interest.
Local Business and Developments The Society recognises that the development of the local economy and improving the overall prosperity of the area are key to the achievement of their primary objectives. Compromises sometimes have to be made, and to ensure that these are always carefully considered, the Society is endeavouring to develop close links with the local authorities and the local business community.
Leased by the Civic Society from the local council, the fort is operated independently by a small professional management team supported by an army of volunteers. Click the button below to go direct to the Fort website.
Town Walks The Society has produced “Town Walks” leaflets, and worked with the local authority on a scheme to place brown information plaques on buildings of historic and architectural interest. The leaflets are usually available at our monthly meetings.
Out of Town Walks There are also many beautiful “Out of Town” walks within the borough boundaries. Click here to go to the Tourist Information site to find out more.
Weymouth Town Centre The Society is actively promoting interest in the evolution of the town centre. See our “Issues” page, and attend our meetings if you’d like to participate.
