Burnham-On-Sea Infants School expansion boosted by council deal
District Council has this week signed a 25-year lease of Burnham-On-Sea's
Winchester Road Playing Fields to Somerset County Council, enabling
work to expand neighbouring Burnham Infants School to proceed.
lease covers 381m2 of land and will enable the County Council
to provide an additional classroom extension within the Burnham
Infants School site to help meet over-subscription at the school.
council says the land itself will not be built on but will help
the school compensate for part of the existing site lost through
an extension to the school building.
new footpath within Winchester Road Playing Fields, the provision
of a new toddler slide and additional tree planting will be included.
Mander, Sedgemoor's Property Management Team Leader, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"Both councils have worked hard to secure this agreement
and it is understood that work on the school will start shortly
with completion for the new school term in September."
