Shaping Weymouth

Representing levy payers in key decisions which shape the town.

A network of government institutions and other bodies have the responsibility, as well as power and resources, to make positive improvements in the Weymouth BID area. Levy payers want a strong body to directly represent their interests and lobby for the changes they want to see. Weymouth BID will be the voice of Weymouth levy payers on all matters affecting the town, working with partners and providing an authoritative point of view to support a joined-up approach to developments, identify savings from suppliers and encourage positive action that aligns with our interests. There are a number of specific, existing and developing areas that will affect the shape and feel of the town over the next few years. 

Regeneration zones and other major developments

  • Pavilion peninsula
  • North Quay
  • Commercial Road
  • Brewers Quay

Hotel policy – driven by the Council

  • Leases
  • Maintenance
  • Conversion to Change of Use

Transport, movement and parking

  • Car parking sites and charges
  • Harbourside pedestrianisation
  • Swannery – drop and ride
  • Train routes and timetables

Planning and public utilities

  • Shop fronts
  • Toilets

There is a major threat to towns as we know them, from out of town locations, from competitive local centres, from the internet, and from weakness in consumer spending. A Shop Local campaign will be investigated and supported by our team. By collaborating with all local agencies and community groups we will be in a much better position to seek funding in the future. Through regular consultation, as well as the formation of expert BID sub-committees, your voice will be heard.
