for new shop and three homes at Berrow Inn site win backing
to build a new convenience store and three homes at the site of
a former pub in Berrow have been given a thumbs-up by parish councillors.
Berrow parish councillors have considered the planning application
from Novellus LLP to convert the former Berrow Inn into a retail
unit, and three dwellings.
Parish Council Chairman Barry Kew told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "As
a parish council, we have recommended approval. This is a brownfield
site within the Berrow development boundary."
feel this is a good use of the site and the large majority of
the village are in favour of having a convenience store there
alongside three houses which would be in keeping with the surroundings."
The scheme - which we first
reported last year - will see a four-bed detached home and
two three-bed semi detached dwellings built with 12 parking spaces.
Comments on the application - which has a reference number of
05/15/00014 - are being welcomed from residents and interested
parities by Sedgemoor District Council until September 11th when
the application will be considered for approval.
Berrow Inn was demolished back in May 2014, as
reported here, following months of uncertainty about the future
of the pub.
