Appeal for Berrow homes rejected
8:00pm Friday 4th January 2013 in Burnham
A DEVELOPER has lost an appeal against Sedgemoor District Council’s decision to reject 13 homes planned for Manor Way, Berrow.
The scheme, for a mix of threeand four-bed houses, was turned down by the council’s development control committee in June.
Applicants Arc Developments South West appealed against the rejection but, in a decision announced in December, Douglas Machin from the Planning Inspectorate, sided with the council.
Mr Machin stated that a neighbouring property would be badly affected by noise if the project went ahead.
