Council's 15-year development blueprint given seal of approval

The blueprint for housing and infrastructure development across Burnham-On-Sea and the rest of Sedgemoor over the next 15 years has received a seal of approval from the Planning Inspectorate this week.

A complex legal process has been followed over the past four years and endorsement of the ‘Core Strategy’ is a major milestone.

"There have been four stages of consultations during the process. These have all been fed into the Core Strategy and the Inspector examined the document in a public hearing in May this year," council spokeswoman Claire Faun told

"Sedgemoor has just received the inspector's report which confirms that the Strategy meets all criteria. The Core Strategy and the inspector's report will be debated at a meeting of the full council on October 12th."

The full Inspector’s report and changes which are binding on the Council can be viewed from the Core Strategy web page here.
