BUTLIN'S will be holding a public exhibition this Wednesday (January 8) to show off plans for a new modern resort hotel to replace some of the older existing accommodation.

Members of the public can find out more about their plans before they apply to West Somerset District Council for planning.

Representatives from Butlin's and their project team will be available to talk to at the exhibition and to answer any questions.

A scale model of the development will show the new one-and two storey holiday accommodation approved earlier this year.

Julian Highfiled, managing director for the Minehead resort, said: "We hope that members of the public will want to come along and view the plans for the resort hotel."

The new hotel could create up to 100 new jobs.

The exhibition takes place at the Hobby Horse Ballroom at the Esplanade in Minehead from 1-8pm.
