Town Council 'has no plans to sell court house'
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 Burnham-On-Sea.com on Thursday
(October 6th) that a discussion had taken place about cutting
"The council holds a periodic review of the running costs
of its Jaycroft Road courthouse," Council Clerk Eileen Shaw
"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.
