seafront tearooms proposals win final go-ahead
to open a new seafront tea rooms and shop in Burnham-On-Sea have
been given the final go-ahead this week.
Round Tower guesthouse on the North Esplanade has requested 'a change
of use' for part of the building for the introduction of a kiosk
and shop plus tea room and dining area with sea views.
Distict Council has approved the plans, following recent support
from Burnham and Highbridge Town Council.
Louise Parkin said: "As a council, we're looking at plans to
improve the seafront these plans help to take things in the
right direction, improving the north end of the Esplanade."
Nick Tolley said: "I welcome this application anything
that creates more amenities at that end of the seafront is good."
John Parkes said: "Surely anything that improves the northern
end of the Esplanade must be supported - I think a business here
offering cream teas is welcome."
plans were approved by the Town Council on the basis that the plans
will "improve the visitor amenity and enhance the northern
Esplanade," which was agreed by Sedgemoor District Council.
