Travellers move into Burnham-On-Sea Sailing Club's parking area

A 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 Club.

Sedgemoor 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.

But rather than moving out of the area, they moved on to the grassed parking area opposite the Sailing Club.

Burnham-On-Sea Sailing Club Chairman Graham Wills told "It is an inconvenience for the Sailing Club's members and we are in dialogue wit Sedgemoor District Council. The Police are also aware."

He 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."

Claire Faun, a spokeswoman for Sedgemoor District Council, said that action is underway to get them moved.
