Burnham-On-Sea car parking charges set to rise this month

Car parking charges across Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge are set to rise this month.

Sedgemoor District Council hiking up the charges at its car parks and street parking bays, including at Burnham's Pier Street Car Park, pictured here.

The cost of car parking for four hours will rise by 10p, while all-day costs will rise by 20p. Short-stay parking for one or two hours will be unchanged.

Tom Dougall, Transport Policy Officer at cash-strapped Sedgemoor District Council, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The charges have been increased to account for the increase in VAT to 20%."

Town councillors in Burnham have expressed concerns that the increases will put off visitors buying a day's parking.
