WESTON could soon have its own dedicated tourism website, listing all of the town’s hotels and visitor attractions.

Weston Town Council is discussing plans for the site and is likely to choose a private company to create it later this year.

The authority is keen to create a comprehensive online directory showing all of the town’s hotels and tourism attractions.

Town clerk Malcolm Nicholson said the website would be along the same line as those operated by other seaside towns such as St Ives and Newquay, saying: “The town council would make sure it was a comprehensive website that would include all of the town’s hotels.

“It’s particularly in the town council’s business as tourism is a major part of Weston’s economy. We’d also like a chance to advertise the town council’s own attractions such as Weston Museum and the Blakehay Theatre.”

Councillor Roger Bailey said: “North Somerset Council has left us with a void where tourism is concerned, so it is important that we should be doing our very best to raise the town’s profile.”
