leave Burnham car park after threat of council legal action
group of travellers that set up camp in a Burnham-On-Sea car park
have left following the threat of legal action.
travellers moved into Burnham's Pier Street car park last Sunday
(July 26th) and left on Thursday night (July 30th).
District Council - which owns the car park - had started legal
proceedings, and spokeswoman Claire Faun told Burnham-On-Sea.com
that the case was due to be heard on Monday 3rd August in Weston
the convoy departed on Thursday evening and the district council's
Cleaning Surroundings Team completed a full clean-up on Friday.
Several large caravans and towing vehicles had been parked up
across multiple spaces in the car park at one of the busiest times
of the summer season.
