A CONCERNED Westonian has written to residents in the Midlands asking them to object to plans for a new £30millon Tropicana development.

Cynthia Newns, of South Road, is urging families to write to North Somerset Council following the unveiling of the plans.

Weston has been dubbed 'Brum-on-Sea' because of its huge popularity with residents from Birmingham and the West Midlands.

Mrs Newns sent a letter to Birmingham newspapers which said: "Thousands of people come to Weston from your area each year. What brings visitors is a wonderful expanse of beach. The sweep of the beach will be dominated by the proposed structure.

"I am all for modernisation, but the jewel in the now worn crown of Weston is the beach and I would ask people of the Midlands to write to the Weston & Somerset Mercury or to the council to ask them to preserve it."

Developers Henry Boot unveiled its plans for a 96-bedroom hotel, cinema, bowling and pool complex at a series of public consultations in November.
