Future Development Plans – Somerset

Monday, 20th September 2021 0945hrs – 1130hrs

This webinar will delve into the potential development, regeneration and investment opportunities which are emerging across Somerset.

There are significant plans in the county to drive economic growth over the coming years with thousands of homes in the pipeline to be built across the council districts of Sedgemoor, Somerset West and Taunton, South Somerset and Somerset County as well as major development and regeneration plans set to transform Somerset’s towns – such as the £1 billion Taunton 2040 vision.

In this webinar we will explore some of these exciting regeneration and housing plans, the job creation projects that come with such growth and look into specifics surrounding a number of forthcoming projects, procurement opportunities and upcoming investment.

Speakers for this event include:

  • Somerset West and Taunton Council – Taunton will undergo major transformation over the next two decades with the £1 billion 2040 vision set to regenerate the county town – involving over 900 new homes with high quality neighbourhoods featuring green public spaces, improved public transport, and work and leisure opportunities in a thriving centre. Chris will join the session to talk about this exciting vision for the town as well as the council’s more immediate housing and regeneration plans.
