Weymouth’s Seafront Strategy

Welcome to the dedicated web page for Weymouth’s Seafront Strategy.

The document sets out a vision to inform the future management of the seafront over the next ten years.

Proposals focus on the beautiful 3-kilometre stretch of coastline including the beach and promenade close to Weymouth Pavilion Theatre in the south, to Greenhill and Overcombe Beach in the north. 

What’s happened so far?

In May 2022 an engagement session included a walkabout on the seafront with town councillors and council staff to gather some initial ideas with the consultants HemingwayDesign. Residents, visitors, and businesses in and around Weymouth were then asked to contribute their views in a survey. We had an amazing response with more than 2,200 people completing the questionnaire!

We then carried out a further public consultation in summer 2023 to focus on what we can deliver as your Town Council. We received over 1,100 responses and the feedback was used to draw up the Seafront Strategy.

What happens next?

The draft Seafront Strategy was considered by Full Council on Wednesday 21st February, where it was approved, with some additional amendments. Prior to this it went to the Environment and Services Committee on Wednesday 24th January. Work will now begin on implementing the strategy and further updates will be publicised.
