THE developers of Weston Wake Park have agreed to give £26,000 to North Somerset Council to help improve roads in the area.

Weston Wake Park, which will house facilities for watersports in Weston-super-Mare including wake-boarding and canoeing, was granted planning permission last week.

The owners of the Bleadon site, Robert and Alistair House, have signed a section 106 agreement – a deal between councils and developers to improve infrastructure in exchange for planning permission.

The brothers have agreed to hand over £26,000 to the council to make the road outside the park, Accommodation Road, safer.

A £10,000 chunk will be allocated for safety improvements to the junction of Accommodation Road and the A370.

Footpath improvements along the road will be carried out after a £15,000 cash boost.

The remaining £1,000 will help pay for speed reduction measures including new ‘slow’ sign and yellow bar road markings on the bend before the site entrance.

The House brothers must pay the first £1,000 before they start building and pay the rest of the cash before September 2016.
