to build five new homes in Burnham are rejected by council
to build five new homes in Burnham-On-Sea have been turned down
by Sedgemoor District Council.
planning application to build the homes on land at 13 Rectory
Road was initially turned down by the council last June, but the
land owners submitted an appeal against the decision last November.
this week, the appeal has been dismissed - effectively putting
an end to the proposals.
Road is characterised by large detached properties usually with
large garden areas. The proposed accommodation would not reflect
or respect this existing character and represents a gross overdevelopment,"
explained a district council spokesman.
planning authority said it also had concerns about privacy and
overlooking issues, plus several badgers setts within or near
the proposed site.
