Town centre litter problems could be swept away in Burnham-On-Sea

Litter problems in the centre of Burnham-On-Sea could soon be swept away following a decision by the town council to invest in a dedicated street cleaner.

Councillors this week voted in favour of spending £12,500 on employing a person to keep the streets of Burnham clean, on the understanding that the funding will be matched by Sedgemoor District Council.

Town clerk Eileen Shaw told "Councillors are very keen to see the state of cleaning improved in the town centre and want a dedicated street cleaner."

"This is only a recommendation at this stage and will require agreement from the town council and Sedgemoor District Council."

The topic was debated at the town council's Policy and Finance Committee on Monday and will be reviewed at next week's meeting of the full council.
