Mactaggart & Mickel are promoting a major extension to the county town of Taunton in Somerset. Taunton & Deane Council published their Core Strategy in 2012 which allocated land at Comeytrowe/Trull as a broad location for 2000 homes.
This initial phase of 2000 homes has been outlined, including the creation of infrastructure upgrades such as the construction of new schools, local centre with shops and community uses, new roads and pedestrian/cycle routes and substantial areas of new public open spaces, as part of a new sustainable community. Indicative of our long term approach to strategic planning, we also have interests in the longer term mixed use strategic urban extension of 6000 homes as intimated in the Councils approved Core Strategy.
Working in collaboration with Bovis Homes, Taylor Wimpey and local house builders Summerfield Homes, Mactaggart & Mickel submitted a planning application in December 2014. Taunton Deane resolved to approve this planning application in end January 2016, subject to the signing of a S106 legal agreement. This is due to be signed in early Autumn 2016.
