Taunton Deane to build 230 new homes

Councillors in Taunton Deane yesterday approved plans to build up to 230 new homes.

Taunton Deane Borough Council’s planning committee backed the authority’s ‘outline’ plan to regenerate the area.

It also supported a separate application for the first phase of the project, which will involve replacing 26 Woolaway properties and building 21 additional homes and a community centre.

The decision follows consultation with residents carried out by the architectural and planning consultancy Nash Partnership over an 18 month period.

‘Having worked closely with residents we are really pleased to see the first step forward in regenerating the local community and building better, more suitable homes for residents,’ said Amanda Taylor, design director at Nash Partnership.

‘Residents have played such an important part in shaping the future of this area. We have taken on board their input and ideas to design homes and a layout that will work for them.

‘The consultation has set a benchmark which will raise the bar for any development that happens here, and will ultimately help to create a thriving, successful place.’
