This plan shows the maximum heights of buildings within the development. It will be a formal plan within the outline planning application that the detailed applications will need to work within. The blue colours are areas include housing and mixed uses, such as the school, care homes, shops, offices and other community facilities. The heights range between two and four storeys.
• The two storey areas are generally on the highest parts of the site and are located to protect skyline views. They are also located adjacent to existing houses along Vinney Lane and Little Keyford Lane.
• The four storey areas are focused around: the community hub to allow for uses such as offices and care homes; the largest park to allow a larger number of people to enjoy the views of the park; and next to the bus routes to maximise sustainable travel. Four storeys have been excluded from areas near Little Keyford Lane and Keyford House to respect the setting of the house and due to the prominence of the area in views from the south.
• Remaining areas are generally three storey, which allows for two storey houses with a habitable roof space over, or town-houses such as those around Victoria Park to be accommodated.
The yellow areas are commercial/employment areas with business such as those at Marston Park, Marston Trading Estate and Commerce Park. These are limited to two storeys which are taller than residential storeys, making the maximum height the same as three storey residential limits.
Whilst we hope most people will be able to access this information online, a printed version of the consultation can be viewed by appointment at Rook Lane Chapel, Bath Street, Frome, BA11 1DN for the duration of the consultation period.
