The Garden Centre Group has had plans to extend Sanders Garden World approved by Sedgemoor District Council’s development and control committee, subject to contributions being made to areas affected by the plans in the next two months.
This includes £25,000 towards the regeneration of Burnham’s town centre, the implementation of a travel plan and a combined foot and cycle path.
The facilities originally proposed by Wyevale also include a new bus stop and shelter in each direction, 486 parking spaces and 40 bicycle parking spaces.
The planning application says: "The travel plan will help to minimise the impact of the proposed development on neighbours and the wider local community in terms of congestion, noise and atmospheric pollution.
"The new roundabout will achieve fewer U-turning movements at Edithmead roundabout, which will benefit traffic flows in this location and reduce trip lengths for certain northbound movements.
"The development proposals will improve local accessibility to non-car modes of transport, including new bus stops to be located on the A38 in the vicinity of the site and new pedestrian and cycling links."
A The Garden Centre Group representative said: "We are always looking at opportunities to improve our centres, but we have no finalised plans for works at Sanders."
Meanwhile TGCG is believed to have two southern garden centres under offer.
