Groundworks start at Monkton Heathfield

Harris and Harris Construction have began infrastructure works at a 187 acre mixed use development site in Monkton Heathfield, Taunton, which has been purchased by Redrow South West.

The house builder is working in partnership with Persimmon at the site, which has outline planning permission for up to 900 new homes located in the picturesque village of Monkton Heathfield, close to Taunton town centre and the M5.

The first phase of building will consist of 120 new Redrow homes. Redrow is planning to build 360 desirable new homes in total, a mix of private and affordable dwellings, with a wide selection of 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms. The development will provide another example of quality and workmanship synonymous with Redrow and Harris and Harris.

Lee Hawker, land director for Redrow (South West), said: “We are delighted to have secured this key strategic site in Taunton, it is a beautiful part of the country and our priority is to deliver a high quality development.”
