raises objection over plans for eight new Burnham homes
councillors have raised a formal objection over plans to build a
development of eight new homes at a site in Burnham-On-Sea.
outline planning application has been submitted for eight new homes
on land at 150 Berrow Road.
plans were considered during the latest meeting of Burnham and Highbridge
Town Council's Planning Applications Committee, pictured above.
councillors are concerned about poor access, traffic congestion,
drainage issues and over-development of the site.
Nick Tolley said: "There would be a lot of traffic coming and
going via a narrow lane leading straight onto Berrow Road."
Road is very busy, especially over holiday periods, and these proposed
homes would generate extra traffic at a dangerous location."
Louise Parkin added: "The plans would be an over-development
of the site - they are unsuitable for this location."
voted to object against the outline application, although the final
decision rests with Sedgemoor District Council.
