It took into consideration 114 objections to plans which include 30 three-bed, 14 two-bed and three four-bedroom houses being built.

Plans submitted to Sedgemoor District Council by developer Flower and Hayes also include 128 parking spaces at the proposed site.

The development is planned for a large area of green land off of Walrow Road opposite Burnham and Highbridge Railway Station.

Sedgemoor district councillor Roger Keen said: “I object to these plans because access to the site is so close to the bridge, and with limited visibility leading out onto Walrow Road this is an accident waiting to happen.”

Sedgemoor will now decide if the development will go ahead.
