Burnham-On-Sea toilets could be turned into bungalows
former set of public toilets in Burnham-On-Sea could soon be turned
into two new bungalows if a planning application gets the go-ahead.
new owners of the property in Hall Terrace, off Seaview Road,
have requested full planning application to convert the property
into two new homes.
application is for "change of use and conversion of redundant
public conveniences to two one bedroom bungalows."
toilets were shut in April
2007 amid vandalism and anti-social behaviour and never re-opened
despite pressure from the town council and tourism bosses, who
argued that more public loos are needed in Burnham. The
district council controversially began inviting bids for
the building in March
2008 after putting them
up for sale.
