Ten form Trop working party
PUBLISHED: 17:30 27 May 2011
THE future of the Tropicana has been placed in the hands of a group of 10 community leaders.
The cross-party gang of North Somerset councillors is to meet for the first time today (Thurs) to discuss a way forward for the closed-down attraction.
It is hoped the new group will find an answer for the derelict site following three failed multi-million pound schemes since its closure more than a decade ago.
Chairman of the group, councillor Elfan Ap Rees, said the first task for the party was to oversee the clearance of seafront work waste from the site.
He said: “We are already preparing to clear the rubble so that we can hold events and other things there in the near future.
“The working party will then be considering what can be done in the longer term at the site. We are still confident an attraction of some sort can be built.”
The selected councillors are David Poole, Clive Webb, Felicity Baker, Richard Tucker, John Crockford-Hawley, Mike Bell, Tony Lake, Tom Leimdorfer, Ian Porter and Elfan Ap Rees.
