Extra car parking spaces unveiled for Burnham-On-Sea

Lynton Road Car Park

More than £45,000 has been spent on expanding two of Burnham-On-Sea's car parks to help meet peak summer demand for parking spaces.

The car park off Lynton Road, pictured, has had its number of spaces increased by eleven, or 11%. It will be re-named the 'High Street Shoppers' Car Park' to highlight its proximity to the town's main shopping centre.

And the car park next to Burnham's swimming pool in Berrow Road has been enlarged by ten spaces - equivalent to 16%. It will be re-named a 'Discount Car Park' to publicise its low charges and encourage greater usage.

Cllr Bob Filmer, Sedgemoor District Council's portfolio holder for Planning and Transport, said: "I hope these extra spaces will be of benefit to the town and the new names will highlight the respective roles of the car parks."

The District Council said it hopes the extra spaces will help relieve pressure on Pier Street Car Park during the summer.
