Parking allowed on Berrow beach between the hours of 10:00 hrs and 15:00 hrs for seven days a week

Following further discussions with businesses, residents and Sedgemoor councillors, SDC has found a way which will allow vehicle access and parking on Berrow beach between the hours of 1:000 hrs and 15:00 hrs for seven days a week with a beach safety warden on hand for any safety issues and advice. There will be no charge to park during the winter months.

Beach-goers are reminded that with the clocks changing and the winter approaching, that the 15:00 hrs closing time will make the most of the daylight hours.  The gates are closed to prevent vehicles from accessing the beach when there are no safety staff on duty, but the beach itself is not closed. There is parking in the nearby Berrow Dunes Nature reserve car park, with pedestrian access.   There are disabled access points at nearby Burnham-on-Sea beach for those who are unable to use the pedestrian access to Berrow Beach.

Sedgemoor District Council will be constructing a car parking area just off Coast Road at Berrow.  This work will start on Monday, 15th November and will take two weeks.  The vehicle and pedestrian access will be closed for those two weeks to allow heavy plant and machinery to work uninterrupted to create the 30 permanent parking spaces, which are not on the beach.  Once installed, these car parking spaces will be free until Easter 2022.   Therefore, the new 7-day arrangements will start on Monday, 29th November, once the work has been completed.
