Plans to build 12 new homes on a patch of derelict land near Burnham-On-Sea have this week been given the thumbs-up by town planners.
The proposal for a dozen new properties on land bordering Naish Road and 181 Berrow Road – pictured above – were backed by Burnham Town Council’s planning committee with two provisos.
Town clerk Eileen Shaw told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “Because this request is just at outline application stage, it is unclear whether the properties would be bungalows or houses. We would prefer bungalows, which would be more in keeping with other homes along Naish Road.”
“Also, three of the 12 dwellings are shown on the plans as having driveways onto Berrow Road. The rest are shown with access onto Naish Road. We would prefer to see all access via Naish Road because Berrow Road is so busy.”
The proposal now goes to Sedgemoor District Council for its planners to examine in more depth.
