Hargreaves Land successfully secured planning consent for residential development at an un-remediated former gas works in Frome, Somerset.
A programme of demolition and remediation was undertaken, which dealt with significant areas of contamination including a large tar well.
The rejuvenated site was sold to Yarlington Housing Group to enable them to develop a mix of affordable houses and apartments and is now home to 34 households.
Hargreaves Land is currently working on a small residential development of between 10-15 units at the Braeside Works in Frome. A planning application is expected to be submitted to Mendip District Council later this year.
The redevelopment of this site will not only improve local residential amenity and support the growth of a local business but will improve the character of the conservation area with the provision of sensitively developed homes.
