Weston's Placemaking strategy

Super Weston is the name of the Weston Placemaking Strategy – a ten-year vision (2020 – 2030) for Weston’s renewal and regeneration. The Strategy is overseen by the Weston Place Agency, which is a cross-sector collaborative partnership to drive the delivery of the programme and transformation of the town.

“Weston is a special place for me. I have been able to live work and thrive in the town for over 25 years. It’s my hope that many others will recognise the special characteristics that make Weston unique.

We continue to invest as a business in the town and ensure positive, inclusive and joyful social media channels sharing the best of what Weston has to offer.”

“The strategy is important to our organisation because we are all about creating a vibrant and healthy local economic community, with diverse local supply chains and job opportunities where small and medium businesses (SMEs) can thrive.

We provide SMEs with advice, training and quality workspace, but recognise businesses need great infrastructure and a quality environment in which to live and work, so they can attract talent and increase their customer base.

We are volunteering our time to help develop the Placemaking Vision strategy along with WP partners, as well as connecting our business networks with each other, so that the vision is communicated to employees, investors and suppliers within and outside of the area.”

‘Having lived in Weston for over 20 years, and worked in the local property market for over 35 years, the Super Weston strategy represents the most ambitious and exciting range of initiatives to bring improvements to the town that I have seen during that time–delivering a positive impact on those who live in, work in and visit the town.

Alder King is closely involved in promoting Weston to investors, developers and property occupiers across the industrial, office, retail and leisure sectors. Our role ranges from helping to bring forward sustainable new development with the resulting employment and investment benefits, through to finding occupiers for vacant properties in the town.’
