The eight-acre site benefits from outline planning permission for 42 residential homes and up to 500sqm of flexible use space. It was previously owned by Marshalls, the UK’s leading hard landscaping manufacturer.
Edenstone, which has a track record in quarry redevelopment, intends to redevelop the site for residential purposes, the details of which will be subject to a reserved matters planning approval. It is currently working up plans with a view of submitting such an application later in the year.
Edenstone Southern’s land director, James Morgan, explained: “We are delighted to have unconditionally secured this site – our second in Somerset – which comes after six months of good natured and positive negotiation with Marshalls.
