Disappointment re: Levelling Up Bid

Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge Town Council expressed disappointment on learning
the news that the Mendip District Council and Sedgemoor District Council joint
levelling up bid had been unsuccessful.

Cllr Lesley Millard, Mayor of Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge said “Although it is
extremely disappointing that this important regeneration project has not received the
backing by central government, the plans still stand and we will continue to focus our
attention on exploring ways to put those in place. We have plans to develop
Highbridge Station as a transport hub as part of our Climate and Ecology Action Plan
and we will continue to seek funding to achieve that”.

The Town Council will also continue to put pressure on Somerset Council to keep the
needs of our town firmly on the agenda. The plan will not disappear, it will be used to
focus future plans for the town in partnership with the community.

Together we can prioritise development and source funding to continue to respond to
local need. The Town Council will work hard to keep the development of Highbridge
firmly in our sights for the future.
