BURNHAM and Highbridge town councillors are planning ahead for the risk of further snow in the coming months.

At a meeting of the Town Council on Monday, councillors discussed the icy conditions which made certain roads impassable and disrupted the trade of the town centre’s businesses.

Following discussions about provisions for future bad weather, councillors agreed to put out four extra grit bins, two in Burnham and two in Highbridge.

Councillors also said that they would be talking to members of the town’s Chamber of Trade and Commerce about contributing manpower to clearing snow with shovels and spades.

Councillor Janet Keen also said that the council should look at adding Marine Drive to Somerset County Council’s list of priority routes, saying it was a ‘vital’ route.
