Have Your Say On Protecting Weymouth

Have Your Say On Protecting Weymouth

We're going to be asked what we think about plans to protect the character of Weymouth's Historic Centre and Georgian Esplanade.

It's time to have your say on protecting the character of Weymouth's historic town centre.

A review of the town's conservation area starts on June 1st, and the Borough Council are looking for comments on their draft plans to protect the amazing architectural heritage on our doorstep. A conservation area is a place of special architectural or historical interest which are protected so people can enjoy them for years to come.

Councillor Ian Roebuck is the Borough Council's Briefholder for Environment and Sustainability. He said: "Our town centre and Georgian seafront is an historic gem. The conservation area appraisal will record why our town is so special and will keep it that way. We want your knowledge about Weymouth's history and hear your views about its conservation".

A drop-in session will be held on the 10th July, where a conservation officer will be on-hand to speak to. It'll be held from 1pm - 7pm at the Ocean room in the Weymouth Pavilion.

Copies of the draft are available from 1st June to 27th July, and can be seen at the council offices and Weymouth Library.
