NGPHL generally supports the overall vision for North Somerset and, in particular, the stated objective to position Weston-super-Mare as a "major economic centre south of Bristol catering for the employment, social and leisure needs of its population".

However, one of the essential ingredients for revitalising Weston Super Mare's overall economy is the strengthening of its retail base (as acknowledged at paragraph 1.24 of the Core Strategy) and so NGPHL conditionally objects to this policy, subject to the policy of being amended as per the highlighted below:

"Weston-super-Mare will be established as a major economic centre south of Bristol catering for the employment, retail, social and leisure needs of its population".
