The organisers of the recent Saxonvale meetings held in the Cheese and Grain are encouraging people to join them this Sunday, 27th February, in Victoria Park. Using people and materials available, the group will map out the true scale of the development planned for the town’s centre – 40,000 square feet.
The ‘HOW BIG?’ demonstration will take place from 3pm in Frome’s Victoria Park at 3pm on Sunday 27th February.The group will meet by the bandstand, and we encourage everyone to join in, regardless of their views about the redevelopment of Saxonvale.
Together with all of those who turn up and want to get involved, the organisers plan to show what 40,000 square foot (4,000 square metres) looks like on the ground.
Following the recent public meetings and online debates, a consensus is developing that a smaller supermarket, as part of a mixed housing, employment and retail development would fit best with the existing Mendip District Council Development Brief for Saxonvale.
