THE Beach Lawns in Weston give a measure of protection for all the present building along the seafront.
Yes, modern building methods can overcome these problems, but with the expected increase in the height of sea levels this maybe wishful thinking. Nature can and does do dreadful things and even the present efforts along the beach wall could be misguided.
Years ago our councillors decreed that the valuable lawns should not be developed upon and likewise our present ones should retain this decree for the Tropicana. Yes, a modern replacement pool is needed but is should be bound to the size of the existing one. The major problem is that the North Somerset Council has no funds (read broke) for such a development, hence the giving away of the most valuable land in Weston to developers who naturally desire to maximise their return by over-developing the site to such a scale that many Westonians have signed a petition to stop the project.
What is to stop a further project on the sands for a 200-bed hotel? How about putting a road along the sand dunes to Uphill? Let's get real and only allow a pool with facilities to swim, sun bathe, eat and drink. Dolphin Square can have the bowling alley, the seven-screen cinema. After all, there are plenty of buses in this area.
