Have your say on plans for housing at Higher Comeytrowe Farm

Thank you for visiting Vistry Group’s consultation website for housing at Higher Comeytrowe Farm, Taunton, adjoining the Orchard Grove new community.  The site is part of the Comeytrowe urban extension area, in part allocated by the council for new housing.

The website provides details of the proposals, a way to register for updates, leave feedback, and to get in touch should you have any questions.

The proposed development includes up to 400 new homes with extensive new public open space, recreation areas, walking routes, play spaces and woodland. Vehicle access would be through Orchard Grove and onto the new spine road.

In line with local and national priorities, the new homes would champion climate change, good design, biodiversity and placemaking, and include 25% affordable homes. The application will consider flooding, active travel and phosphate management. All new homes will be gas-free, using renewable energy technologies and high standards of design to reduce carbon emissions and waste.

To date we have been talking to planning officers, community representatives and on the 16th February, held a public webinar where we ran through the proposals and answered questions. You can view the presentation below.

The consultation runs until 10th March, we will then be reviewing all the feedback to inform the planning application. Please click here to see the development proposals and here to comment.
