Underhill Farm, Midsomer Norton



Curo is proposing to build 58 new homes, including 30% affordable housing, on land at Underhill Farm, in Midsomer Norton.

The site was allocated for housing development in Mendip District Council's Local Plan Part II, approved in December 2021.


The site is located on the western edge of Midsomer Norton, between Underhill Farm to the west and Orchard Vale to the east. Underhill Wood borders the site to the north and the Woodside estate is situated to the south.

The homes

The development could deliver 58 new homes for sale and rent. 30% of the new homes would be affordable housing: 14 homes would be let at social rent and the remainder 3 homes would be sold through the part rent/part buy Shared Ownership scheme.

In addition, we're also proposing to deliver two replacement affordable homes.

Homes at Underhill Farm will be a mix of 1- and 2-bedroom apartments and 2- to 4-bedroom houses.

All homes will meet the new 2021 Building Regulations standards, which are yet to come into effect. The properties will be well insulated and designed to achieve a minimum 31% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to current Building Regulation standards.

Public consultation

On Tuesday 22 March 2022 we hosted a public exhibition at the Orchard Community Hall in Midsomer Norton, to showcase our development proposals for land at Underhill Farm. Our public consultation continued online, with local people being able to give us their views on the proposals via this page until 12 April.

What happens next?

We will review and use your feedback to refine our development proposals before submitting a planning application to Mendip District Council and Bath & North East Somerset Council this summer.

You can keep up to date with our progress via this page, Curo's social media channels and local media outlets in Midsomer Norton.

If our planning application is successful, we would start construction works on site in Spring 2024, with a view to complete the development by 2026. The first new homes would be ready for residents to move into by spring 2025.
