Plans for extension at Burnham-On-Sea rugby club win approval

Proposals for a major new extension at Burnham-On-Sea rugby club were approved by district council planners today (Wednesday, March 25th).

The Burnham Association of Sports Clubs had submitted an application to build a single storey extension with a flat roof to form a new viewing terrace at the BASC ground building off Stoddens Road, pictured.

The proposals were given a green light by Sedgemoor District Council's planning officer Con McStay on Wednesday - much to the delight of the club.

BASC Ground treasurer Peter Gaylard told the group is "absolutely delighted" by the news. was first to report last year how the club had received a £10,000 grant towards the modernisation programme from Burnham County Councillor Mike Facey, who allocated the funds from Somerset County Council's Local Initiatives Budget.

Several conditions have been placed on the club as part of the approval process. In the interest of visual amenity, the materials used in the construction must match those used in the existing building.

And to safeguard local residents from noise and disturbance, the emission of noise from any music in the premises must be controlled by limiting the output that it is inaudible to nearby residents.
Furthermore, no system of public address or loud speaker system must be used on the proposed viewing terrace and patio.
