Summerfield Homes commissioned Focus on Design to undertake some initial conceptual work for a large urban extension on the edge of Taunton.
After some preliminary appraisal work the scheme was the subject of a Design Review workshop made up of key stakeholders and multi-disciplinary design professionals. Following the review, the scheme was revised and a Public Consultation was held.
We were then commissioned to undertake the masterplanning work to support a 315 unit Outline Planning Application, working closely with officers at Taunton Deane Borough Council, key consultees, as well as Local Ward Members,
Having successfully secured the Outline Consent, we were further commissioned to submit the Reserved Matters application for the first phase which has now been approved and work is well underway.
The scheme incorporates high quality traditional design to reflect the rich and varied architectural style of surrounding Somerset villages.
