Home Activities Planning Awards Tudor H0 Borough Contacts Members

Our Objectives

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 high 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.

   The Society monitors local planning applications and makes observations and offers opinions to the local authorities, based on the views of a representative groups of members. More details are to be found on the activities and planning pages.

   We hold regular monthly meetings, and issue a quarterly Newsletter which summarises our recent activities and future programme.

We make a series of Annual Awards for projects which help to achieve these objectives. Click here or the picture below for full details of our current awards.
