A multi-million pound redevelopment of an historic boatyard has been unveiled.

More than 100 residents visited Burnham Town Council’s offices to see plans to transformPriors Boatyard into a housing development.

About 20 homes, complete with moorings, are planned for the site, which is home to a 123-year-old boatyard on Burnham’s Quayside.

John Harding, of Embrace Architecture, said the plans were generally well received.

He said: “The plans will cost lots, it’s a multi-millionpound development.

“Most townsfolk understand change is needed for Burnham and say it’s nice."
