The community is central to the Council’s delivery, even more so now where we are all experiencing significant impacts on our lives. These are difficult times for everyone, but YOUR Town Council is here to help you where we can.
Today, 1st April 2020, Weymouth Town Council is celebrating one year since it first came into operation.
In that time, the Town Council has seamlessly taken on local services including parks, gardens, open spaces, cemeteries, allotments, beach, community development and town centre work, along with pushing forward new projects like the beach front toilets, seafront lighting and Tumbledown Farm.
Some major achievements over the past twelve months include:
• Declaring a climate change emergency in July 2019 and working on measures to address the Town Council’s impact on the environment
• Weymouth Beach being awarded the Blue Flag and Seaside Awards
• Greenhill and Sandsfoot Gardens being awarded the Green Flag
• Wyemouth Town Centre being awarded the Purple Flag
• Being recognised by the Civic Society Award for planting schemes at Greenhill, Sandsfoot and Radipole Gardens
• Enabling and supporting over 150 events
• Engaging over 7,000 members of public with the work of the Town Council
Town Clerk, Jane Biscombe said, “I am extremely proud of the Council’s achievements in the last 12 months. None of our success would have been possible without the dedicated staff team, committed Councillors, supportive partners and trusting residents, who continue to support the communities of Weymouth through the current difficult times.”
