Frome sells to Mendip

Frome Town Council have exchanged contracts with Mendip District Council on the sale of their land adjacent to the Saxonvale site.

Mendip District Council has agreed to purchase Frome Town Council’s land for the asking price of £985,000.  The incorporation of the land will help to deliver a more comprehensive scheme at the Saxonvale site in Frome.

Paul Wynne, Town Clerk, Frome Town Council, said; “We’re really pleased that, by selling our land to Mendip, the whole of the Saxonvale site can be developed as one.  Securing a comprehensive regeneration of Saxonvale is an important objective that we have been working hard to achieve for some time.

Full plans have yet to be put forward by developer Acorn Property Group but their initial vision is to replace one of the areas of Frome that was a major business and employment site in years gone by, with a mixed housing development with an enhanced riverfront.
