We are working with Weymouth Town Council to develop Weymouth’s Purple Flag status and support the town’s night time economy.
Purple Flag is a town and city centre award, similar to the Blue Flag for beaches and Green Flag for parks & gardens, which aims to raise the standard and broaden the appeal of town and city centres in the evenings and at night. The scheme is managed by the Association of Town and City Management (ATCM) working alongside the Purple Flag Advisory Committee, a partnership of key stakeholder groups backed by Government, police and businesses.
Purple Flag accredited towns and cities have proven that they are welcoming to everyone; Weymouth offers safe ways for visitors to travel home after dark and provides a good mix of venues. Weymouth’s night time economy benefits from more visitors, lower crime and anti-social behaviour and improved perceptions of the town centre.
