Development land and planning specialists Greenslade Taylor Hunt are the sole selling agents for an important parcel of residential land conveniently placed beside the M5 motorway and close to the Gravity smart campus on the former Royal Ordnance site at Puriton, near Bridgwater, Somerset.

When complete Gravity will create up to 7,500 jobs and contribute millions to the local economy. It will also benefit from on site rail services.

The land on the market with Greenslade Taylor Hunt is strategically placed between the built up area of Puriton and the Gravity site.

An outline planning application for up to 120 homes on the land off Woolavington Road, Puriton, was submitted to Sedgemoor District Council in 2020.  

The council has approved the proposal subject to the completion of a Section 106 Agreement of contributions.
