Burnham and Highbridge Area Neighbourhood Plan

The Burnham and Highbridge Area Neighbourhood Plan was formally adopted by Sedgemoor District Council in October 2018

Following the successful referendum on 20 September 2018, Sedgemoor District Council has now formally 'made' the Neighbourhood Development Plan for Burnham on Sea and Highbridge and the plan now forms part of the Statutory Development Plan for the area.  Planning decisions should be made in accordance with the same, unless there are other material considerations that indicate otherwise. 

The 'made' plan is available here: Icon for pdf BoSH Neighbourhood Plan Referendum Version [4.66MB]
