VISITORS to Apex Park in Highbridge will be asked for their views on proposals to transform the park's main building into a new cafe and office.

The main building currently houses an office, storeroom and toilet facilities and Sedgemoor District Council (SDC) says once proposals are drawn up an ongoing consultation will give regular users an opportunity to influence and inform the design options for the building.

The proposed new building is likely to include a café, public toilets, a class room/interpretation centre, an office and a store room.

A spokesman for SDC, which owns the building, said the council has been working with the Friends of Apex Park to make better use of the buildings in the popular park, which is used year-round by visitors, dog walkers, model boat club and fishermen.

"The building is currently used as a Ranger office, loos, office and store-room and a base for SDC’s Clean Surroundings team as well as Friends of Apex Park group," the spokesman said.

"Quattro Design Architectural Practice have been asked to prepare some plans giving options for the re-development of the building.

"Once the plans have been received, there will be full consultation with Ward Members; The Friends of Apex Park, Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge Town Council together with other user groups."
