PROTESTORS are launching a poster campaign to ask the council to put a proposed development elsewhere.

Henry Boot is set to build a £25million leisure complex on the derelict Tropicana site on Weston's seafront.

But The Friends of Our Tropicana group is producing 300-500 posters calling for an open air pool to be re-opened there and for the new development to go elsewhere in North Somerset.

Group chairman, Reverend Fernley Symons, said: "Henry Boot's Development is something Weston could do with but just not on the beach.

"Sites that have been suggested instead include Dolphin Square or perhaps near Weston Airfield or Worle.

"The A4 and A3 posters will be put up in shop windows and elsewhere across North Somerset."

A development agreement for Henry's Boot's scheme was signed earlier this year. If approved the £25 million development will consist of an indoor leisure pool, hotel, cinema, skate park, bowling alley, restaurants, bars, shops and a children's play area. A planning application is expected to be submitted in the autumn.
