A questionnaire has been released to find out what people like and do not like about Weston-super-Mare after dark.

People are being asked to take part in the survey about how safe they feel in the town at night and what they would like to see added to what is already on offer.

North Somerset Council is organising the survey, and its community safety manager Howard Pothecary said: “We want to build on the partnership work which has been done over the past three years aimed at ensuring people have a good night out in Weston

“Whether you are a regular night time visitor to the town centre or not, we would like to get your thoughts on Weston’s nightlife.

“Your responses will help steer us in our joint work with the police and other agencies to make Weston’s evening and night time economy even safer, more attractive and diverse.”
