Published:  03 June, 2011

WESTON-SUPER-MARE: McLaren Construction starts work next month on a £19m revamp of Weston-Super-Mare town centre for a joint venture including its new property division.

The retail and leisure development is one of the first starts on site by the McLaren Property division. It is working in a joint venture with Life Property on the project that has a development value of £35m and will take two years to build.

Work on a new hotel and car park is due for completion in June 2012 before the demolition of the 1960s Dolphin Square shopping centre. It will be replaced with a new build development of retail units scheduled to open in May 2013.
