This committee has delegated authority to make recommendations to Sedgemoor District Council on all planning applications affecting Burnham on Sea and Highbridge. If the recommendation of this Council coincides with that of the District, the case officer can deal with the matter under delegated authority. (There is an exception where the application is classed as major development). If there is a difference of opinion, the application will be put to the District's Development Control committee where a final decision will be made.The Town Council committee meets to determine the application within twenty-one days of receipt, which in practise means on a two weekly basis, in order that our views can be put in writing to Development Control if necessary.
