Sustainable village development proposal

Project

LVA is promoting this 12.6 acre (5.1 hectare) site forming part of the former Scott’s Nurseries Garden Centre, located on the north eastern outskirts of Merriott, a village in South Somerset.
 
An outline planning application was submitted in March 2022 for a mixed-use development comprising of retail and commercial units and up to 70 dwellings. Proposals have been driven by a thorough appreciation of the constraints and opportunities of the site with an emphasis on providing a natural and complementary expansion to the village having regard to the local environment and existing village character and setting. A decision is awaited.
