THESE are the first images showing how a town centre development will look.Last week the Weston & Somerset Mercury revealed how businessman Dudley Bailey is going to attach wind turbines and other eco-friendly features to his new property in Locking Road, Weston.The owner of The Cliffs tea rooms at the end of Kewstoke Toll Road says he also wants to put solar panels across the building and special underground pipes which recover heat from the ground and turn them into energy.The designs for the building, seen here, have been approved by North Somerset Council with some amendments. The pictures show how the property, which lies between The Red Admiral pub and a disused church, will look. The building itself, which is currently a garage, will have a glass frontage overlooking Locking Road. It will mainly be rectangular in shape with a curved facade and will be used as office and retail space.These images show the initial designs and the approved building was reduced in height from the four storeys shown to three. The glass will also be neutral tinted but with coloured lighting internally at night.
