needed before decision on Burnham seafront mini golf plans
to build a new mini golf course on Burnham-On-Sea's seafront have
been delayed this week while the district council further considers
an application to lease the land.
council's Executive committee heard from three residents on Wednesday
(June 9th) who live along the South Esplanade opposite the proposed
golf course. Cllr Neville Jones also spoke against the scheme
"as a resident and on behalf of residents" and not as
Executive also heard from Paul Chatwin, the entrepreneur behind
the scheme, who explained his plans for the grassy area to the
south of the coastguard station.
spokeswoman Claire Faun told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The Executive
heard from several residents and the person proposing the mini
golf course. After discussions, it was decided to defer the decision
whilst further information is gathered as to the covenants that
apply to the land."
this week, Burnham-On-Sea.com reported
here how the concerned residents had called on town councillors
to withdraw their support of the controversial plans. The
council's planning applications committee last
week approved by the proposals, but Sedgemoor District Council
will have the final say on whether they proceed.
