take-away proposed for former Burnham-On-Sea gift shop
vacant gift shop in Burnham-On-Sea's High Street could soon be
transformed into a new hot food take-away.
A local businessman wants to overhaul the shop at 63 High Street,
previously occupied by Magpie Gifts.
The applicant, Oktay Akar, has this week submitted a 'change
of use' application to Sedgemoor District Council to convert the
shop into a take-away and install an external extraction flue.
He has also requested opening hours of 12 noon-11pm on weekdays
and at weekends. If approved, the new business intends to employ
two full-time staff and three part-timers.
