We agree with the challenges and issues facing Weston-super -Mare that have been listed. However, it seems there is a lack of planning of infrastructure and transport. Weston-super-Mare road network is currently choked at peak times and this can only get worse with future development. An increase in population will put extra strain on the health care and hospital provision. The plan should look to ensure sites for potentially a new or upgraded hospital fit to serve a larger population in 2036 and beyond. No mention has been made of the threat of climate change on possible problems with coastal and fluvial flooding of the area.
