to the official site for The Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge Regeneration
Partnership, a company that was formed to attract and include
local participation in the regeneration of the area.
At the last Annual General Meeting in December 2007 the Regeneration
Partnership elected Councillor Rosemarie Parsons to the position
of Chair. Rosemarie, who lives in Highbridge, is a long-term member
of the Partnership and is adamant that the needs of the communities
within both towns must be the prime focus for any regeneration
If you are interested in the local community, you are welcome
