Plan submitted for 560 new homes at Follett’s Farm, Bridgwater

A PLAN for over 550 homes on the outskirts of Bridgwater has been submitted.

The project, by Lance Alec Rainey House and Hannick Homes Developments Ltd, would see 560 new homes built on land at Follett’s Farm, Dunwear Lane, near the M5 motorway.

The app is a blueprint, which means that particular development details are not included, but rather an overview of what’s on offer.

Details show that the program would include 560 residential properties, as well as access for vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles.

The site is 21.5 hectares of land bordered by Dunwear Lane, Westonzoyland Road and the M5 east of Bridgwater. It is included in the Sedgemoor district local development plan.

The application describes how the development would be access through “two priority T-junctions on Dunwear Lane”.

“A new roundabout on the A372 (Westonzoyland Road), associated with the development site adjacent to Bower Farm, will provide a new four-arm junction to facilitate access to both sites,” he adds.

SITE: At Follett’s Farm, Bridgwater

The existing ditches, hedges and trees on the site “will be preserved as far as possible”, indicates the plan, alongside the open spaces and necessary play areas.

Residents can view the full application online at, using reference 09/21/00017.

Comments on the app are open until June 17, 2021.
