Boat Launch Permits

Boat launching on Burnham-On-Sea beach

How to buy your launch permit… In order to launch any boat, yacht, jet ski or other water craft from Burnham-On-Sea’s jetty and slipway (pictured right) you require a launch permit.

This is charged at £85 and covers the year from March to March, or you can buy a daily £21 permit. More details are available here.

It lets you drive onto the foreshore to launch your craft. Visit Sedgemoor District Council’s Jetty Office for more details or email environmental.services@sedgemoor.gov.uk or call 0300 303 7806.

The application form records your personal details (name, address etc) plus details of your craft and also asks you to declare that you have public liability insurance for the use of the craft for a minimum of £2 million.

Once you have delivered your craft to the beach or jetty, you are required to park your vehicle in the special trailer area at the rear of the supermarket car park opposite the seafront. Parking here costs £6 per day.
