Burnham-On-Sea MP welcomes £1.6m Evolution project go-ahead

Burnham-On-Sea MP James Heappey has this week welcomed the new that the town's £1.6m Burnham Evolution Project has taken a step foward.

As first reported here, the project's Business Plan was approved by town councillors on Monday for the project, which aims to make the town more attractive to visitors and residents.

The plan will form the basis to apply for £1,663,000 of funding from the government's Coastal Communities Fund, the Hinkley Community Impact Mitigation Fund and other funding bodies.

Mr Heappey said: "I am pleased to see the Council are putting together this project. With the busy tourism season approaching, it is important the Esplanade looks its very best."

"Burnham-On-Sea is a wonderful place for people to visit and there will be people who will dismiss these improvements but I could not disagree more. For a tourist town, first impressions really matter."
