Full planning permission has now been granted, and construction will commence during autumn 2016. We expect to take first reservations in spring 2017 and we anticipate welcoming our first homeowners in autumn 2017.
The market town of Melksham is located on the banks of the stunning River Avon and is surrounded by the picturesque countryside and green spaces of rural Wiltshire. Sitting just 10 miles east of Bath and once part of a huge royal forest that covered the area, it offers a rich local history and plenty of exciting landmarks to explore. In Tudor times, Melksham was one of the favourite hunting grounds for England's royalty. The area was known for prosperity in its agriculture and had a bustling woollen industry. These days, the town's history can be explored in the historic quarter of the town centre, where two beautiful churches and an original town square offer a reminder of days gone by.
For some local entertainment the Melksham Assembly Hall hosts regular comedy showcases, dinners and live music, whilst the summer months bring Melsham Music Festival and Party in the Park. The annual Christmas Fayre is a great place to experience community spirit as local volunteers come together to create a stunning display for the town centre.
The development itself sits just half a mile from a Waitrose supermarket and a convenient Sainsbury's. The central shopping parade is just moments from the site, which includes a Boots and several high street banks. There's also a good selection of coffee shops, pubs and restaurants. Melksham's public library is half a mile away and the closest community hospital located close to the site. Every Tuesday the town comes alive with a regular market selling household goods and delicious local produce from surrounding farms.
