PLACE AGENCY

A network for collaborative place leadership so people and organisations can actively participate in placemaking in Weston-super-Mare.

Weston Place Agency can provide the town with a rich resource of expertise, connections, strategic alignment and potential investment. It can create momentum around regeneration to create value for Weston and it’s people. Using an overarching and unified brand for hard copy collateral, cultural programming and online content, we can better promote Weston as a place.

You can download and use brand assets, templates and guidelines from the resources page.

Steering group

The Place Agency has a Steering Group which was created in September 2020 following endorsement by Weston Town Council and North Somerset Council.  It is currently comprised of:

  • Angela Hicks – North Somerset Enterprise Agency (Chair)   
  • Alex Hearn – North Somerset Council (Secretary)
  • Mark Canniford – North Somerset Council        
  • Fiona Mathews – Culture Weston
  • Jon Walton – Sovereign Centre
  • Michelle Michael – Grand Pier
  • Gemma Day – Dowlas Group
  • Ian Porter – Weston College
  • Sue Shilabeer – Weston Chamber of Commerce
  • Alan Peak – Weston Town Council        
  • Paul Batt – Weston Business Improvement District

The Steering Group membership will be reviewed in 2021, and then regularly on a bi-annual basis.  It oversees a small and focused project team that meets regularly to plan of cultural activity, events in the town and managing a communications plan.

The Steering Group will host Network-wide get-togethers for the Network and a wider audience.
