Plans for seven new homes in Burnham-On-Sea draw objections

Burnham-On-Sea town councillors have raised formal objections over plans by a housing firm to remove parking spaces in the town to create seven new homes.

Homes in Sedgemoor wants to demolish a set of garages to construct three new dwellings on land to the north of 2 Quantock Close, as pictured above, with the loss of five parking spaces.

And the firm also wants to demolish a further set of garages between numbers 53 and 69 Love Lane to create a new building of four new flats, pictured right, with the loss of eight parking spaces.

The proposals were considered by town councillors at their latest Planning Applications Committee meeting, where several objections were raised.

Cllr Peter Burridge Clayton said: "While the new homes may well enhance the area and provide new housing, there's concern about the loss of parking which is contrary to council policy."

Cllr Andy Brewer added: "Several residents have put in objections about the removal of parking and privacy issues for which I can sympathise."

Formal objections against both schems have therefore been raised on the grounds that the plans are contrary to the County Council's parking strategy and a policy within the Sedgemoor Core Strategy.

The Town Council has also recommended a site visit by Sedgemoor District Council planners to the area affected before they consider the scheme.
