North Somerset Council's (NSC) executive has approved plans to demolish Weston-super-Mare's Tropicana building after failing to secure a "deliverable" future for the complex.

Members of the executive took the decision at a meeting on 13 December, which followed a soft market testing exercise undertaken by DTZ exploring the potential for development.

The Tropicana site will now be returned to sand, with the sea wall reinstated "where necessary", although the decision has been called in by opposition councillors for further consideration in early January.

A number of attempts to redevelop the site have fallen through, with the Nightingale Group the last remaining bidder to withdraw from the scheme earlier this year.

The Nightingale Group - working alongside FaulknerBrowns Architects, Serco and DTZ - had proposed a new indoor adventure water park with a spa and a cinema.

Havard Tisdale had also expressed an interest in redeveloping the site - designed by Kay Elliott - but pulled out of the development last January.
