New plans for 35 flats unveiled for Burnham-On-Sea town centre
new proposals to build two blocks of three-storey retirement apartments
in place of a former garage in the centre of Burnham-On-Sea have
been unveiled this week.
brand new scheme, from Abracore Ltd, proposes 35 apartments be
built on the site of the former Tucker's Garage in Victoria Street,
which was knocked down in 2007.
District Council rejected
earlier proposals for the site in July after raising concerns
about flooding risks, affordable housing, outdoor sports facilities
and a loss of privacy for nearby homeowners.
the developer says its new scheme has addressed the comments and
design changes have been made.
District Council's planning department is currently accepting
feedback on the scheme - application number 11/13/00097 - until
October 4th and its Development Control Committee is then expected
to consider the scheme before a final decision is taken on whether
to allow the development.
site was previously occupied by the former Tucker's Garage which
was demolished six years ago, as covered here.
