Work gets underway to build 73 new low-cost Highbridge homes

Controversial work to build dozens of new homes on land next to Highbridge's Asda supermarket has begun over the last week.

Land alongside Caxton Road has been landscaped, as pictured, and construction equipment has moved onto the site.

Raglan Housing Association won permission from Sedgemoor District Council to develop the 3.7 acre site last year.

The scheme includes 73 'affordable homes' in the first phase and the whole site, when complete, will boast 117 homes.

The plans for the low-cost houses and flats were met with controversy when town councillors expressed concerns about "over development" of the site amid soaring number of empty properties in the town.
