AT present we have a beautifully laid out promenade created in the past by people with vision. Running parallel with the promenade we have the Beach Lawns and then an inner road with pleasant stone houses that all tone in with the area along the seafront. How can the council approve the Henry Boot plans to regenerate the Tropicana? They will be an eyesore forever.What we want is a swimming pool, with a smaller one for children and the not-so-able swimmers, a cafe/restaurant overlooking the pool for those who come to watch and eat, and a snack bar downstairs for the swimmers and those from the beach. We want a pool which can be used throughout the year to serve the residents and visitors but we don't want to break up the lawns, which are a delight, just to accommodate cars.We do not want a cinema on the beach so far away from the town. It will create a 'yob' area late at night, and more work for our overstretched police force. We don't want another hotel judging by those that have closed down or a high rise project like this on sand, with the sea rising every year and global warming. Why not give the people of Weston what they want and what is right? The Tropicana's Regeneration and Development Association (TRADA) has sent in 16,000 signatures against these plans. How can the council ignore this?PHILLIPPA BOWKETT - Landermann Circus, Weston
