Work starts on 75 North Petherton homes
18 January 2022
Construction work has started on 75 new homes in North Petherton.
Here at Persimmon we are building the much-needed new properties at its Chaucer's Meadow development on Taunton Road.
The first homes are expected to be released for sale later this month– and Carly Spear, Sales Director at Severn Valley, revealed more than 180 people have registered an interest in the development.
“It’s fantastic to see construction work begin at Chaucer's Meadow,” said Carly. “We have seen huge interest in this development and we’re certain that the homes are going to sell extremely quickly.
“Chaucer's Meadow is located between the sought-after towns of Bridgwater and Taunton in beautiful Somerset. There is so much for people enjoy right on their doorsteps including the stunning Quantock Hills, so the demand has come as no surprise.
“We plan to release the first properties for sale this month. Anyone interested is advised to register their details now to be kept up-to-date with progress.”

The development, which spans 5.68 acres, will create 105 full-time direct jobs.
Chaucer's Meadow will be made up of a choice of two, three and four-bedroom homes.
House types available include the popular four-bedroom Chedworth with its open plan kitchen/family room and well-proportioned living room.
Twenty-two of the 75 properties – 30 per cent – will be ‘affordable’ for social housing.
The site is located on land to the east of the A38 and is included as part of the Sedgemoor Draft Local Plan.
The development will be accessed via a new road off the A38.
Families will benefit from good local schools and there are fantastic commuter links to the cities of Bristol, Exeter and Bath.
