Seafront golf course protesters step up fight against plans

Protesters fighting plans for a new mini golf course on Burnham-On-Sea's seafront have this week launched a poster campaign to try and halt the scheme.

They have put up posters along The Esplanade next to the grassy area where entrepreneur Paul Chatwin hopes to build a mini golf park, as pictured here.

The posters - which state 'Say No To Mini Golf' - have been put up as Sedgemoor District Council is due to consider the scheme in more detail in coming days.

The protest group also spoke at Monday's Town Council meeting where they claimed that the council's inability to object against the scheme was "utterly bewildering".

Proposals to build the course were delayed in June while the district council further considers the application to lease the land.

Mr Chatwin says the proposed golf park would be "sensitively designed" to minimise the impact on local residents. He hopes the proposed tourist attraction will attract new visitors to the town, as first reported here in February.
