A talk by Prof. Carl Whitehouse.

(For this meeting we return to The Old Town Hall, our usual venue.)

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.

Weymouth Town Centre
The Society is actively promoting interest in the evolution of the town centre. See our “Town Centre” page, and attend our meetings if you’d like to participate.

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. Click here to go to the Tourist Information site.

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.

The Old Town Hall

We usually meet at The Old Town Hall

To find us head along the causeway and go past the hair pin bend at west End Cottages, start to climb the hill towards Nottington then turn first right onto the gravel drive. This drive splits in 2 and Meadows is through the oak gates. There is plenty of parking and space to turn around within the campus, and I shall be there to greet you. Any questions please shout.
