Further talks regarding the relocation of Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council offices

The Town Council has resolved that it will formally seek to work with Somerset County Council in respect of the purchase of the former SS&L building in Princess Street, Burnham-on-Sea.

The building commands a significant location in the town, sitting within an area ideally suited to become an administrative centre. The Town Council is ambitious to see the creation of a public services hub where the Princess Theatre, library & a new town hall can work together harmoniously to increase public access to information & services. The adopted neighbourhood plan 2014-2032 identifies the building’s forecourt as an area suited to the establishment of a public open space.

The Town Council acknowledges that at the current time it is unlikely to require exclusive use of the former SS&L building and is therefore keen to explore the potential to work alongside other public, or similar, bodies on the site.

Before any final decision can be taken on the sale of its existing building and purchase of another, the Town Council is required to have undertaken a full business case. This will include obtaining for both sites, valuations, full surveys, quotes on refurbishment & repair works, running costs as well as assessment of any other option available. There will be an opportunity for the electorate to have its say at consultation sessions to be scheduled.
