Published at 8:41am 1st June 2012.

What's special about Weymouth? And what do you want to see protected? That's what the Borough Council want to find out from you.

Conservation teams are looking at what areas of the town centre have special historical qualities that should be preserved.

It's all about ensuring things like the Georgian Esplanade are protected so people can enjoy them for years to come.

Weymouth and Portland Borough Council is responsible for deciding which places should be safeguarded, and they'd like people to comment on their draft review.

Councillor Ian Roebuck, Weymouth and Portland Borough Council Briefholder for Environment and Sustainability, said :" our town centre and Georgian seafront is a historic gem, we are very lucky to have such an amazing architectural heritage on our doorsteps. I would urge anyone interested in the future of Weymouth's town centre to have their say".

A drop-in session will be held so people can speak to a conservation officer, find out more about the draft Weymouth Town Centre Conservation Area Character Appraisal and make comments. It will be held from 1pm-7pm on 10th July at the Ocean Room at Weymouth pavilion.

Copies of the draft will be available from 1st June to 27th July 2012. The appraisal and online comments form will be available HERE.

Copies can also be seen at Weymouth and Portland Borough Council offices and Weymouth Library.
