THE possible closure of a car park in Axbridge is 'still top of the list of priorities' for the town council.

Representatives from the council have posted a notice on the town website about the proposed sale and possible closure of Meadow Street car park.

The post says that the town council is still actively pursuing various options regarding the sale and things may go quiet while it is being taken forward, but residents should rest assured that it is top of the list of priorities.

The town council is working with Axbridge Action Group, the Chamber of Commerce and the Town Trust to present a united front against the car park owners, Sedgemoor District Council.
