Burnham-On-Sea Town Council 'has no plans to sell court house'

Burnham and Highbridge Town Council has assured residents this week that 'no plans' are being drawn up to sell its council chambers.

A Town Council spokesperson told on Thursday (October 6th) that a discussion had taken place about cutting costs.

"The council holds a periodic review of the running costs of its Jaycroft Road courthouse," Council Clerk Eileen Shaw told

"A full discussion was held about the matter, but no decisions have been taken or imminent plans put forward to sell the building."

It follows the accidental publication of a set of confidential minutes on the town council's website earlier this week which revealed the old courthouse had previously been valued at £500,000 in 2006 and that talks with potential developers may be about to be held.
