move into Burnham-On-Sea Sailing Club's parking area
group of travellers parked up on Burnham-On-Sea's seafront lawns
has moved a few metres into a car parking area for the town's Sailing
District Council headed to court on Monday (June 5th) in a legal
bid to move the travellers, who had been parked on the seafront
lawns on Burnham-On-Sea's South Esplanade for a week.
rather than moving out of the area, they moved on to the grassed
parking area opposite the Sailing Club.
Sailing Club Chairman Graham Wills told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It
is an inconvenience for the Sailing Club's members and we are in
dialogue wit Sedgemoor District Council. The Police are also aware."
added: "Because the parking area is owned by Sedgemoor District
Council and leased to the Sailing Club, it is the council's legal
responsibility to take action to move them."
Faun, a spokeswoman for Sedgemoor District Council, said that action
is underway to get them moved.
