I WISH to object in the strongest terms to the planned development of the Tropicana. My objections are based upon the following grounds:The proposed car parking is a gross violation of the Beach Lawns. This is a conservation area and a major feature of Weston's seafront. The development will dominate and destroy the sweep of the bay and be a major obstacle to sea views for residents and holidaymakers. None of the Henry Boot plans and pictures show fully the impact on sea views and Beach Lawns imposition of the project. The raising of the seafront on each side is not shown fully on the Boot pictures. This part of the bay is in a residential area, and a major commercial enterprise of this kind will adversely affect the acceptable noise level and character of the immediate environment.The design, appearance and layout of the project are totally out of keeping with anything in Weston, except perhaps the college. Also, the size, height and width, is out of all proportion to anything else on the seafront.The car parking plans suggest an increase in traffic that Weston roads cannot possibly contain. Fifteen thousand residents and visitors have signed petitions against this plan. Please do not disregard this! Many will not be able to respond to the plans on the council's website, but their views must be taken into account.ROGER JONES - Clifton Road, Weston
