PLANS for 50 homes in Axbridge have been revealed by a potential developer.

Hannick Homes and Developments wants to build the homes off Houlgate Way.

Sedgemoor District Council has carried out a survey in the area, and identified 20 affordable homes need to be built in the town.

Hannick Homes is proposing to build 20 affordable homes, as well as a children’s play area.

It also wants to provide employment space, which can be used by new or existing businesses in the town.

The developer’s consultation documents say: “Additional development will help sustain local facilities such as the school, community centre and the local shops in Axbridge.

“This will lead to additional jobs by providing land for the potential expansion of existing firms or by accommodating new businesses.

“It will also provide much needed affordable housing and market housing.”

The majority of car parking will be off-street, and the developer is considering providing extra spaces adjacent to the Axbridge Surgery in Houlgate Way.

A planning application has not yet been submitted to Sedgemoor, but Hannick Homes has been working with the council on the scheme.
