your say on Burnham's town centre vision at planning meeting
new vision for Burnham-On-Sea town centre will be discussed during
the latest meeting of the town's Neighbourhood Planning Group
this Thursday (December 11th).
Neighbourhood Planning Burnham Town Centre Topic Group will meet
at 7pm in Burnham Community Centre when residents will be welcome
to have their say.
group's Phil Harvey told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We've already
held a town centre walk (pictured) and a workshop, followed
by the first meeting of the topic group where we considered the
planning background to Burnham town centre and were able to question
one of Sedgemoor's senior planning officers."
we want to set out our overall vision - how do we want this area
to develop in the years ahead? Once we've done that, we can look
at developing policies to achieve it."
Thursday's meeting will be helped by the regeneration ideas that
have been produced in the past and suggestions from local residents.
addition, a group of King Alfred School students have been working
on their ideas and have produced a display to showcase them.
Phil continued: "This is the first of a number of topic groups
that will work to develop the Neighbourhood Plan over the coming
months. Anyone is welcome to come along and contribute to the
the end of the day, the plan is produced by local people and will
only come into effect if it is approved by a local referendum.
The more participation there is and the more feedback we get the
