Leading partnerships developer Lovell is bringing 80 new homes to Cotford St Luke near Taunton, after completing contracts on a £25 million, mixed tenure development.

Situated off Dene Road, the development will consist of two, three and four-bedroom properties, including 60 for open market sale and 20 affordable homes.

All 80 homes will be gas-free and benefit from air source heat pumps. The scheme will also deliver a minimum of 10 per cent Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG), meaning that the development will have a positive impact on the area’s habitats, plants and wildlife, compared to what was on the site previously.

Construction work is due to commence in summer 2025 and complete mid-2027. In early 2026, the first open market sale homes will be available for sale and the doors to the development’s two showhomes will open.

James Duffett, regional managing director at Lovell, said: “Completing contracts on this site in Cotford St Luke is a brilliant achievement for us at Lovell and an important milestone.

“These homes will be in a desirable, rural location close to the town of Taunton, with stunning countryside views. At Lovell we put a lot of care into designing our homes to make sure they suit a wide variety of lifestyles, from first-time buyers, to families and second steppers, to rightsizers.

“This development will be the second gas-free community in our portfolio, and we are very proud to be creating a sustainable new place where people can live and work. We are looking forward to commencing work next year and to be bringing our Lovell legacy to Cotford St Luke.”
