starts legal action to move travellers from Burnham seafront
proceedings have begun this week to move a group of travellers parked
on Burnham-On-Sea seafront.
five vehicles arrived on the South Esplanade lawns over the Bank
Holiday weekend and have been parked opposite Burnham Sailing Club
for several days.
Faun, a spokeswoman for Sedgemoor District Council, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"We are aware of the travellers and have started the legal
process to remove them."
Council has a co-ordinated plan of action to deal with these incursions,
but there are statutory timescales that we have to abide by."
solicitor visited the group on Tuesday morning, she added.
