The first phase of a major development plan for the build of 550 homes has been supported by Burnham and Highbridge Town Council.

The development of 74 homes and a foul water pumping station to be built on Highbridge’s Brue Farm site in Huntspill Road has been unanimously supported by councillors at a planning application meeting on Monday.

Hallam Land Management submitted plans for two, three and four bedroom houses of various styles to be built on the site, with some containing garages and room for bicycle storage.

Committee members mentioned their approval of the different layouts and designs but councillor Andy Brewer said he was disappointed not see any solar panels included in the plans, he then stated these were only observations and not objections.

Sedgemoor District Council now has the final say as to whether this development will go ahead.
