to correct Burnham Carnival road closure signs after date error
and Highbridge Town Council says it is 'working urgently' to correct
an error on carnival road closure signs around the town which
give an incorrect date.
town centre businesses say they are concerned that trade will
be hit because the signs incorrectly warn to "expect town
centre road closures" on November 9th and 10th, when in fact
no town centre roads will be shut on Tuesday November 10th.
temporary closures will be in force as usual during the evening
of the Burnham-On-Sea Carnival
on Monday November 9th, and also along The Esplanade and Pier
Street on Sunday (November 8th) during the Burnham-On-Sea
error was pointed out by Cllr Louise Parkin during a Town Council
meeting this week. "It might be petty to some, but to shops
in the town centre who rely on business this is a big mistake
and no-one wants to miss out on trade," she said.
Town Centre Manager said the dates on the signs had been drawn
from the road closure applications. She added that the council
is now updating them.
