Tackling deprivation in Weston-super-Mare will be debated on Monday, amid concerns a health hub needs to be built sooner than 2020.

The One Public Estate project is being led by North Somerset Council and health chiefs to create a building with a GP surgery and children’s centre to try to tackle long-standing concerns over health in the town centre.

Weston Town Council has its own Central Ward Working Party looking into deprivation issues.

Cllr Richard Nightingale will propose four motions on Monday, calling for the date of the new health hub to be brought forward earlier than 2020.

Proposals will also ask for renewed focus on poor housing conditions and crime in drug and alcohol support accommodation.

It will be argued North Somerset Council should implement a star rating system for support accommodation.

The meeting will start at 7pm at Weston Town Hall.
