What's Proposed?

A comprehensive masterplan has been produced that has been developed and informed through workshop groups, public consultation and discussions with Taunton Deane Borough Council and Somerset County Council.

 

Key elements of the proposed development are as follows:

  • 1628 new homes.
  • Highway improvements including a new spine road that will significantly reduce traffic through Staplegrove Village, particularly on Corkscrew Lane and Manor Road.
  • A new 420 capacity 2-form entry primary school with pre-school facilities.
  • 2 hectares of flexible employment space.
  • Over 25 hectares, equivalent to 39 football pitches, of new public open space including parks, play spaces, community orchards, allotments and sports fields.
  • A local centre with shops and community facilities.
  • Extensive flood mitigation measures that will significantly reduce surface water run-off and risk of flooding in the area.
  • New bus services and pedestrian and cycle routes.
