Objection letters opposing a sea wall in Weston have begun to flood in branding the scheme as 'ludicrous' and 'absurd'.The £7million proposal to raise the sea wall, improve the promenade and build a 1-1.5m secondary splash wall will be discussed at North Somerset Council's west area committee on December 14 and the matter has also been called in by Weston Town Council on December 12.Residents and businessmen have been writing in to oppose the scheme, including Steve Berry of Berry's News and Food, Weston, who is urging the council to back the idea of a marina to benefit tourism.Residents have also written in appealing to the council to listen saying: "This proposed eyesore will ruin the Weston seafront, discourage visitors and tourists and result in a wholly unwelcome increase in council tax."Anyone wishing to have their say on the scheme can do so at www.n-somerset.gov.uk.
