group of eight vans and motorhomes plus several horse boxes moved
into the Pier Stret car park on the town's seafront on Tuesday
District Council has begun legal action to try and get the travellers
to move on.
District Council spokesman Claire Faun told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"We are aware of the travellers in Pier Street car park and
are preparing notices requiring them to vacate."
"If they fail to do so we will issue court proceedings. Because
of the requirements to give them notice of the hearing the likely
hearing date will be the middle of next week."
comes just weeks after several groups of travellers have pitched
up in Burnham this summer - at the BASC sports ground, on the
seafront, and in the same car park.
