Our Bristol office has completed on the purchase of a 5.5 acre site in the exclusive village of Wedmore, Somerset, where it has been granted full planning consent for a fifty-five unit residential scheme.
The £20m Cross Farm development, designed by Barton Willmore, and in partnership with Wedmore Parish Council, will feature 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses, of which over 43% will be affordable housing to help address the local housing needs.
Since agreeing to buy the site Acorn has worked with the council to draw up viable detailed plans and following completion on the land; work on site is due to start imminently.
Situated in the heart of Wedmore, the development is a short walk from the local shops, amenities and the village school. The new homes will also enjoy views of the Mendips and Cheddar Gorge.
Robin Squire, Regional Managing Director of Acorn’s Bristol office commented: “Local interest has already exceeded expectations and we very much look forward to getting construction underway on these exciting high-quality homes which help address the local housing needs.”
