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.
Activities The Society monitors planning applications in the area, and makes observations and offers opinions to the local authorities. More details are to be found on the activities and planning pages.
We hold regular monthly meetings, where we briefly discus some current planning issues, and are entertained by a speaker on a topic of interest.
Our Planning pages include reports, opinions and links to key pages of the Local Authority websites. Click the blue button above
