Burnham Town Team's consultation underway on £300k Tesco boost

Burnham-On-Sea Town Team's consultation with residents, businesses and councillors is underway this week on how £300,000 of Tesco funding should be spent in the town centre.

The Town Team has been asked to gather ideas and feedback from businesses, residents, landlords and community groups to help form the Town Council's report back to Sedgemoor District Council on possible uses for the 'Section 106 funding' that the district council has received from Tesco, as recently reported here.

Town Team member Bev Milner Simonds, pictured, told "It is great to hear from people what they would like to see happen on and around the High Street and our meeting, together with the online survey and face-to-face discussions we had over the weekend with traders, will all build into our final recommendations to the Town Council next week."

Bev added: "As we are about to submit our second bid to be a Portas Pilot Town this kind of feedback is an invaluable follow up to the extensive survey work we did in March."

Those who haven't yet filled out a form - which comprises of five short questions and takes a couple of minutes to complete - can download the questionnaire here and email responses back to or print it out and drop it back to Home Hardware on Burnham High Street.
