raised over Burnham Tesco's plans for new car wash
Burnham-On-Sea supermarket has unveiled plans to build a new permanent
car wash outside its store, raising fears among some nearby residents
about extra noise.
Tesco store in Ben Travers Way has submitted a planning application
to Sedgemoor District Council outlining its plans to convert nine
car parking spaces into the permanent hand car wash facility with
a screened wet wash area, office and canopy.
District Council's Environment Health Officer Ray Fox has recommended
that a number of 'mitigation measures' are introduced to protect
local residents from noise and night-time light pollution.
hours will be limited to 8am-7pm on weekdays and Saturdays, and
10am-5pm on Sundays, although Sedgemoor is suggesting the Sunday
opening be contained to 10am-4pm, the same as the store.
says the proposed car wash would be sited on the north side of
the car park, adjacent to the Rosewood pub, and that it would
generate four full-time and four part-time jobs.
District Council's planning department is welcoming feedback on
the scheme - application number 11/13/00114 - as part of its consultation
period which runs until 29/11/2013.
