seafront to get £55,000 upgrade for summer season
seafront is to be given a £55,000 upgrade before the start
of the summer holiday season, it has been announced this week.
District Council is investing £55,000 in improving facilities
such as public toilets, shelters and showers along The Esplanade.
Faun, council spokeswoman, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Phase
one, starting by the end of month, will see scaffolding going up
around shelters on the South Esplanade, beginning at the Yacht club
end, to repair and paint the shelters. Each shelter will be done
individually so that two shelters will always be available."
phase two, the same will happen with the three shelters along the
North Esplanade, starting at the Seaview Road end. Each shelter
will be done individually so that two shelters will always be available."
added: "The external showers and foot washes at The Esplanade
toilets will be replaced."
will mean that the ladies toilet will be closed for a couple of
days whilst workmen access the pipework which is in the internal
walls. There will be replacement portaloos provided during his time."
are also minor repairs to the lifeguard hut and TIC toilets, painting
and repair works to the Pier Street bus shelter."
are also planning works to refurbish the Victoria Street shelter,
Apex Park toilets/rangers hut and we are awaiting pricing and timescales."
Chamber of Trade spokesman said the funding is "a welcome and
well-timed boost that will help give the seafront an uplift ahead
of the start to the busy holiday season."
