land train plans for Burnham seafront get council backing
for a new seafront land train to be introduced in Burnham-On-Sea
as a tourist attraction received the backing town councillors
The plans for a children's land train on The Esplanade near
the Bay View Cafe, pictured above, were considered during a meeting
of the council's Town Improvements Committee on Wednesday evening
Joe Leach, who is a member of the committee, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"There was plenty of support for the plans, which could be
a positive addition to the seafront as a tourist attraction."
the committee agreed in principal to the scheme, no final decision
was taken because the size of the area that the attraction will
occupy was not clear. The attraction is similar to go-karts and
will be fenced off."
final decision on the plans is likely to be made by the council
