councillors' concerns over hidden tourism information board
tourist information display board in Burnham-On-Sea town centre
could soon be moved by the Town Council amid concern that it is
hidden behind a trader's stall during the busy summer season.
The 'You Are Here' board is fixed to the wall of the 99p Store
in Pier Street and was installed by the Town Council two years
ago to help visitors find their way around Burnham.
However, members of the Town Council's Town Improvements Committee
voiced their concerns on Wednesday evening (March 23rd) that it
is often hidden behind the shop's outdoor market stall during
the height of the summer season.
Councillors discussed the matter as a 'confidential agenda item'
at Wednesday's meeting and so the full discussion was not publicly
aired. Acting Town Council Clerk Denise Emery said she "will
be investigating the matter further in coming weeks."
