CMS were initially engaged by the land owner of this 2 acre site within the village outskirts of Faulkland, Mendip, to provide Architectural services in obtaining planning approval for a residential development. Through a considered design approach and proactive engagement with the local community a proposal was developed for the construction of 18no. new dwellings, including affordable units, together with the conversion of redundant farm buildings which received successful planning committee approval.
CMS were then instrumental in the marketing of the site and subsequently facilitated the purchase by Ashford Homes who retained our services for the production of full construction information and on site control. The development was completed in 2018 and has been very successful by providing much needed housing stock to the locality and presenting opportunity for local young people to secure an affordable home.
