Weymouth Civic Society

Home Information Planning Awards Tudor House 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 representative groups of members.

More details are to be found on the information and planning pages.

   We hold regular monthly meetings, and a Newsletter is issued three times a year which includes topical articles and summarises our recent activities and future programme. The most recent Newsletter may be downloaded from the members page of this site.
