Planning permission for Firepool scheme - Taunton town centre
PJA are delighted to announce that plans for a large mixed-use town centre development were approved at planning committee last night. The Firepool site in Taunton, promoted by St. Modwen Developments Ltd, is located on a former cattle market on the edge of the town centre, between Taunton railway station and Somerset County Cricket Club.
The plans include up to 200 new residential units, food and non-food retail, offices, a hotel, cinema and pub/restaurant uses and a 425 space car park. The scheme will be accessed via the newly opened Northern Inner Distribution Road and will also provide an attractive pedestrian/cycle link between Taunton town centre and the railway station.
