We are proposing new affordable homes and community infrastructure for Lympsham
What is happening?

Strongvox Homes is proposing to build 50 new homes, including 40% affordable homes, at Beavers Lodge Farm, off Lympsham Road on the eastern edge of the village. Priority for new affordable homes will be given to local people with a known housing need.

The development will incorporate a safe and continuous walking route between the village and the A370 (Bridgwater Road), greatly improving pedestrian safety and links to Eastertown, Ferry Lane and Boat Lane.

Why here?

The site in question is agricultural land in a well-connected location, in close proximity to the A370 Bridgwater Road, between the settlements of Lympsham and Eastertown, within close walking distance of community facilities and amenities in the village centre.

Meeting the majority of Lympsham's recognised need for new market and affordable homes in this location will avoid any potential increase in road traffic movements through the village centre, by building homes closer to the A370.

What stage are we at?

Strongvox Homes are currently preparing a detailed planning application for the site. We intend to hold pre-application discussions with Lympsham Parish Council and Sedgemoor District Council in the coming weeks, to discuss issues relating to design, landscape and road and pedestrian access.

It's important that our plans match the aspirations of the local community, including the provision of affordable housing that will best meet local need in the village. Therefore, before we finalise our plans, we would like to invite you to let us know your thoughts and tell us if you think there are any issues that you would like us to consider.
