Garden centre's new roundabout plan for A38
Sanders Garden World is waiting for a decision on a massive expansion of its site, which would see a new roundabout built on the A38 near East Brent and Mark.
Owners Wyevale Garden Centres have put in an application to extend the centre’s main building bring in extra cycle paths and footpaths along the A38 and provide cash for struggling town centre businesses in nearby Burnham on Sea.
A new roundabout on the A38 will allow vehicles to turn right out of the site instead of first travelling south to the Edithmead Roundabout and undertaking a u-turn.
New pedestrian and cycle routes would link the site to new bus stops and into the site.

And they would create bigger car parks, coach parking spaces, cycle parking spaces and a new service yard area.
The application for planning permission was presented to Sedgemoor District Council’s development control committee last week and a decision on whether to approve the build has been deferred for two months to allow a deal to provide support and compensation to local areas affected by the expansion plan.
The existing garden centre opened in 2001 and consists of a single storey building, an area to the rear covered by a polytunnel style roof as well as an open sales area.
It is one of the Cheddar Valley’s most popular retail destinations, bringing in coach parties from across the south west and the Midlands.
