An application by phone operator Orange to build a new mobile phone mast along Burnham-On-Sea’s Marine Drive has been turned down by town planners.

Burnham and Highbridge town council’s planning committee have rejected a pre-planning application to locate an 11.8 metre tall mobile phone mast along the road.

The structure would have been 23 metres nearer the town centre than the existing O2 phone mast, against which an enforcement notice has already been served.

Councillors agreed that the town clerk should inform Alder King, who are acting on behalf of Orange, that the council would not consider an application at this location.
