Princess Hall regeneration scheme to be discussed in September

A special 'all-partner meeting' is to be held in September to push forward the plans to transform Burnham-On-Sea’s Princess Hall into the proposed Learning and Cultural Quarter pictured above.

The meeting has been arranged following discussions this week between Sedgemoor District Council and the Burnham and Highbridge Community Association, which runs Burnham Community Centre in Berrow Road.

Burnham's Princess Hall"The Community Association and Sedgemoor District Council, like other partners, need to determine the long term strategies for their buildings and activities and it is vital that the prospects for the achievement of the Learning and Cultural Quarter based on the Princess is fully explored and conclusions. The timetable for this is set for April 2009," district council spokeswoman Claire Faun told on Friday (August 1st).

"Exciting plans for refurbished and extended Princess were devised by consultant Nigel Grainge earlier this year in close liaison with the Community Association, the Burnham and Highbridge Regeneration Partnership, Princess Hall User Group and Burnham Chamber of Commerce."

"The task ahead is to turn these ambitions into reality and if not achievable, plan how the partners can work together to ensure good quality facilities in Burnham-on-Sea for the future."
