Severn Barrage boss discusses 'green' concerns with Burnham's MP

Burnham-On-Sea's MP met the entrepreneur behind controversial plans to build a Severn Barrage between Brean Down and Wales this week.

Tessa Munt met Gareth Woodham from the Severn Lake project during a surgery session in Burnham town centre on Friday, as pictured.

Afterwards, he told "I explained to her that I fully understand environmental concerns among local people and what to address them. We spoke about the possibility of holding several open meetings to answer people's questions and ensure as much information as possible is available."

Later in the day, Mr Woodham also met bosses at Sedgemoor District Council in Bridgwater to further discuss his proposals.

"I had a useful session with Doug Bamsey, the council's Corporate Director of Regeneration, in which I outlined our plans and proposals to encourage entrepreneurship. It was a well accepted visit and a good step towards further liaison with the Somerset community."
