Dear Somerset West and Taunton Council,
I would appreciate it if you would tell me the benefits that have been brought to Minehead by Butlins, since its building in 1962.
Thank you for your query. Your request will be dealt with under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 and you will receive an official response
within 20 working days.

With regards to your FOI request I am going to have to ask for more information.
The benefits to Minehead brought by Butlins being there, in my opinion, is completely subjective. In order to look at any aspect that would really need to be specific.
If it were employment figures, then Butlins themselves would be the ones to go to as it is a private venture, although they are not bound by the freedom of information act they may provide it out of kindness, if there was a compelling case. Possibly Minehead town council may be better placed to answer also. Feel free to come back to us with a more specific framework and we will do our best to help.
