Mendip District Council is working with Bath and NE Somerset Council (B&NES) to test interest for a new affordable housing development near Midsomer Norton. The land lies within Mendip District but housing in this location would be well placed to make use of services and facilities in the town. There are no specific plans to view at this stage.
As Midsomer Norton is not a choice offered to Mendip/Somerset applicants for affordable housing, both Mendip and B&NES are undertaking a ‘fact finding approach’. If there is sufficient interest, the site has further joint work will be needed to realise potential of delivering affordable housing for people from both local authority areas.
Mendip is conducting a short survey to those living in the Frome, Mells or Faulkland areas to gauge initial interest in this location.
Could you please let us know, whether this is something of interest to you, and if so what your housing requirements are? Via our online survey: http://www.mendip.gov.uk/midsomernorton
