Sanctuary Homes is to build more than 130 new homes in Somerset as part of a major £18 million development.

Work to construct 133 properties on former farm land in Glastonbury between now and 2021 is due to get underway in the summer.

Plans will see the construction of 30 two-bedroom houses, 61 three-bedroom and 12 four-bedroom as well as 30 two-bedroom apartments on the site just off the A39.

Of these, 43 will be for shared ownership, 46 for affordable and social rent, and 44 for sale.

The properties form part of Sanctuary’s significant national development programme to build 30,000 new homes across England and Scotland over the next 10 years.

Sanctuary is working with development partner ENGIE (formerly Keepmoat Regeneration) to deliver the homes in Glastonbury with the first expected to be ready next spring.

Part-funded by Homes England, the remainder of the properties will be built over a further three phases with the overall completion date set for the summer of 2021.

Justin Cartwright, Sanctuary’s development manager in the South West, said: “This is a major long-term development for Sanctuary and one which will bring a much-needed boost to the local housing market over the next three years.

“As well as delivering new homes, the development will also create a range of employment and training opportunities for local people including apprenticeships.”
