Paving work at Weston-super-Mare's flagship Dolphin Square development has been torn up and will be re-laid after concerns were aired about the quality of the work.

Coming soon... Dolphin Square.Coming soon... Dolphin Square.

The ‘uneven’ paving work in Church Square, which is the area in front of Emmanuel Church in Oxford Street, was criticised by Weston Civic Society.

North Somerset Council confirmed the paving work will be redone.

The civic society had said the work was not up to scratch and was pleased to hear the paving will be re-laid.

A spokesman said: “As Church Square nears completion the quality of the paving is seriously lacking. It is uneven and not smooth curves.”

Construction work at Dolphin Square is due to be completed by mid-August, but no opening date for the site – which will include national restaurant chains like Nando’s and Pizza Express, and a Cineworld cinema – has been confirmed by developers McLaren Life.
