Plans for nine
homes in Burnham-On-Sea get council 'thumbs-up'
for a new developent of nine new homes in Burnham-On-Sea have
this week been given a thumbs-up by the Town Council.
An application for outline planning permission for nine dwellings
on land to the rear of 24 Golf Links Road was considered by members
of the Town Council's Planning Applications Committee.
The proposals involve the demolition of the current house at
24 Golf Links Road and the formation of three 2-bed apartments,
one 3bed bungalow, three 3-bed terraced dwellings and two
5-bed detached dwellings plus 17 parking spaces.
Deputy Town Clerk Denise Emery told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Members
were happy to see the diversity of property proposed in this application
as it offered apartments, town house, large family homes and a
is in line with the balanced breakdown in the council's Core Strategy
and what the Town Council have asked for in previous developments."
"Members were also pleased to note that the applicant had
addressed the issue of access so that vehicle movement to and
from the site was not onto the very busy Berrow Road, but via
Gold Links Road."
The Town Council committee decided to lodge 'no observations'
on the proposals and this conclusion has gone to Sedgemooor District's
planning department, who will consider the application.
proposals have been submitted by the land owner, town councillor
Martin Cox, who was not present at this week's council meeting,
having declared his interest in the scheme.
He was represented at this week's meeting by Ben Ponting from
architects Aspire Planning, who outlined the proposals to town
Sedgemoor District Council - which will have the ultimate decision
on whether the plans are approved - is inviting comments from
interested parties as part of its normal consultation period,
which runs until September 16th.
