WHY INVEST IN WESTON MARE ?
Regeneration in the South West – Is now the time to invest?
A West of England region-wide plan is being developed to address housing and transport needs up until 2036. An additional 29,000 houses will be needed across North Somerset, Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Bristol in the next 20 years, on top of those already planned for by local councils.
Regeneration in Weston-Super-Mare’s town centre has taken a major leap forward with significant progress being made on several big projects.
In November, developers McLaren Life announced building contractors would soon begin moving into Dolphin Square to start construction on the £18mil third phase of the site and is scheduled to be ready for a summer 2017 opening.
Big names have already signed up for the development which include; Nandos, Prezzo, Pizza Express, Mimosa Buffet, Preto and Costa Coffee. The complex will also include a 1,600 seater, eight screen Cineworld, as well as a indoor climbing and soft play company Rock Up and a health and fitness operator.
Regeneration manager Rachel Lewis, from North Somerset Council said: “Development of this site right in the centre of town is fantastic news. It’s great to see the big names that have signed up, showing real confidence in the town’s future and prosperity. As well as attracting new interest in the town and making it an even better place to live, Dolphin Square will be a catalyst for further investment. This marks a major step forward in our wider plans to improve Weston town centre.”
Another site allocated for development is the police station, former magistrates’ court and adjacent sites known as Walliscote Place, where modern urban apartments are due to be built to create a more welcoming space for the town centre while showcasing some of Weston’s heritage. It is hoped that by taking the lead on a high quality residential development, the council will set a new standard in the town centre housing and attract young professionals to live there.
Attracting more people to live in the town centre is vital to its future prosperity and Weston is one of just 20 areas outside London to be designated as a Housing Zone.
At the same time, Weston College’s flagship project to create a new Law and Professional Services Academy at the Winter Gardens is poised to get started soon. Redevelopment and modernisation of this landmark building will attract new students to live and study in Weston, as well as addressing local skill gaps and creating new jobs.

Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £750 + VAT buyer's premium which is ALWAYS payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.
An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
