We've got planning permission to build 24 new homes at Firepool Lock in Taunton

09 January 2015

We've been awarded planning permission to develop 24 affordable homes at Firepool Lock in Taunton in partnership with Abbey Manor Ltd, the Homes and Communities Agency and Taunton Deane Borough Council.

The new development will be built adjacent to the existing scheme, Waterside House, which we completed back in 2013.

Work will begin on the development in March 2015, creating 22 homes for rent and two homes for shared ownership. Private gardens will be provided for houses and communal outside areas for apartments. The homes will be built by Mi-Space.

Mike Day, our Director of Development and Homeownership has said, ‘We’re proud to be leading the way on this next phase in the wider regeneration of Firepool Lock.

These 24 new homes will provide more, much needed affordable housing in the area. We’re looking forward to helping this community to flourish even more in the months and years to come.’

A plan of the proposed homes is above.
