defends 'baffling' sign that points visitors in opposite direction!
visitors in Burnham-On-Sea seeking the public loos or tourist
information centre have been left baffled by a road sign that
points them in the opposite direction!
sign on the South Esplanade is just a few metres away from the
building containing the facilities to the right -
but instead it points people away from the premises.
spokesperson for BIARS, the community group that runs Burnham's
information centre, said: "It's definitely misleading and
without doubt is not helping visitors who are unfamiliar with
visitors have remarked how confusing it is, but when we complained
to Somerset County Council they defended it, saying the sign is
trying to show that parking for the Tourist Information Centre
and toilets is on the left - not the facilities themselves!"
Burnham town councillors have this week vowed to take up the matter
with Somerset County Council.
