North Somerset Council is offering a £5,000 commission for a photographer to capture future heritage enhancements to Weston's town centre.
Working with Weston’s Heritage Action Zone (HAZ), the role involves creating a portfolio of the many changes taking place, including - buildings that are part of the enhancement scheme; before and after pictures of work being done on buildings; and images that capture the relationship between people, the building work and the community.
Heritage and regeneration champion at North Somerset Council, Cllr John Crockford-Hawley, said: “Following such a difficult year, this is an excellent addition to our HAZ project and will document the work taking place to revitalise an area that’s full of interesting post-war modernism and Victorian buildings.”
High street businesses within the Heritage Action Zone are offered a 75 per cent grant towards shop front enhancement. Community focused projects will use images to highlight the changes.
