Tourism remains an important part of Weston's economy and tourism related businesses should be protected and encouraged by planning policies. Good transport links are essential for all types of business including dualling the railway track into Weston to increase rail capacity, and also major improvement to the capacity of Junction 21.

Transport links and capacity vital. Tourism remains important.
