SuperWeston launched

Nearly 300 people signed up to watch and listen to the SuperWeston: Placemaking Launch in December 2020.

A panel of placemakers got together to sing the virtues of Weston, explore the new Placemaking Strategy and to invite people and organisations to become part of the Weston Place Agency Network.

The webinar was chaired by Jon Walton, the manager of the Sovereign Centre and invited the views of:

  • Fiona Matthews (Culture Weston)
  • David Warburton (Urban Splash)
  • Nicola Antaki (Turner Works)
  • Alex Hearn (North Somerset Council)
  • Jemma Coles (The Stable)
  • Sam Walker (Walker and Ling)
  • Dave Crew (Weston College)
  • Simon Price (Alder King)

The Weston Place Agency will be hosting get togethers in the future to consider the challenges and opportunities for the town to grasp, such as:

  • Business, skills and employability
  • Diversity and inclusivity
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Climate emergency
  • Retail, town centres and the visitor economy
  • Development and investment
  • Arts, culture and heritage
  • Digital and technology
