concerns halt new housing plan at Burnham care home site
District Council has this week rejected plans to convert a former
care home in Burnham-On-Sea into seven new homes amid concerns
former Gables Care Home on the corner of Burnham's Grove Road
and Berrow Road closed last year.
New Shore Developments applied to the district council to create
one two-bedroom house, four two-bedroom flats and two one bedroom
flats in its place.
the district council has turned down the proposals this week,
saying: "The Somerset Countywide Parking Strategy suggests
an optimum level of thirteen spaces for such a level and type
application provides just eight spaces, leaving a shortfall of
five spaces. This is likely to lead to increased pressure for
on-street parking to an unacceptable level."
