There are two Heritage Action Zones (HAZ) in Weston Town Centre, funded by Historic England.
The zones were created following a £6m investment from Historic England. They aim to unlock potential in areas that are rich in heritage. We want to bring historic places back to life to attract residents, tourists, businesses and investors, and create economic growth.
The focus of a heritage action zone includes:
- bringing buildings back into use as quality housing
- developing clear heritage routes within the town centre to enhance existing trails through the town to the beach and train station
- opening up new pedestrian access to Weston Museum, Town Square and the seafront
- improving shop fronts and signage in the town centre.
