Council rejects plans for ice cream kiosk on Burnham seafront
to introduce a new ice cream kiosk on Burnham-On-Sea seafront
have been given a thumbs-down by town councillors this week.
council's Planning Applications Committee considered a bid by
the owner of The Esplanade Fish Bar to site the kiosk on the forecourt
outside his premises from March to October.
councillors said the kiosk would be 'out of keeping' with the
surrounding street scene and would impact the 'visual amenity'.
They have lodged a formal objection against the plans.
Paul Young told Wednesday's meeting: "This kiosk would definitely
not help the appearance of that section of the seafront at all
- it would be detrimental to the overall street scene."
was also one objection from a seafront resident regarding the
proposals, which will now be considered by Sedgemoor District
