Cllr Elfan Ap Rees, North Somerset Council’s deputy leader and executive member for economic development, said: “This showcase is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to find out about the benefits of coming to Weston.

“With business growth in other parts of the country stalling, Weston is an exception with developments actually taking place on the ground.

“We have 72 hectares of employment land ready to go, benefiting from planning permission, great communication links, the multi-million pound road improvements around the M5 junction 21 underway and a highly skilled local workforce.

“Weston is thriving and growing and there’s never been a better time to locate or expand your business here.”
