South West property developer, Burrington Estates New Homes, has been granted full planning permission for the creation of 85 high quality homes on land off Thornford Road in Yetminster, Dorset.

Following discussions with Yetminster and Ryme Intrinseca Parish Council and Dorset County Council, with input from the general public, full planning permission was awarded for the collection of one, two, three, four and five bedroom homes and the award-winning property developer will begin work in early 2019.

The seven-acre site in Yetminster, near Yeovil, has had detailed planning permission confirmed for 85 dwellings. Each of the homes have been sensitively designed to complement local village architecture and the surrounding landscape. All Burrington Estates properties are built to a high standard, with premium finishes and adaptable interiors as well as offering a outstanding customer service.

The desirable village of Yetminster has easy access to both Sherborne and Yeovil and good road and rail links to other parts of the South West and London. There is a great range of local amenities including a primary school, food stores and a 16th century pub.

Colin Palmer, Managing Director of Burrington Estates New Homes, said: “This site marks our first new homes development in Dorset. We have already received strong interest in the site and look forward to getting started with the build in the new year.”

David Matthews, Development Director at Burrington Estates New Homes, said: “Working with the local parish council and local residents has really helped to shape this scheme, engaging with the community is an important part of what we do and we are positive that our new homes will enhance the existing village community.”

Each home will have at least two parking spaces and good-sized rear gardens. The site layout takes consideration for public open space and a footpath linking to Stony Acres and the wider village. Inside, homeowners can find a British built-in kitchen with integrated appliances, luxury fitted carpets and ceramic tiles. Energy efficiency is at the forefront of the development with smart heating controls and excellent insulation levels throughout. All homeowners will receive a complimentary, one day concierge service to assist with putting up pictures frames and hanging curtains.

Burrington Estates will provide financial support for educational facilities in the vicinity and for the provision of on-site public open spaces. There will also be affordable homes on site offering rent and shared ownership.

Work will begin in early 2019 and will continue for approximately two years. Burrington Estates will make use of the fantastic local trade base, as well as directly and indirectly increase employment, helping to boost the local economy. The national speed limit will be reduced to 30mph on Thornford Road – both aiming to provide a safe pedestrian and cycle environment. Help to buy will be available on the homes.
