We intend for this website to be the tool to communicate with the community of Frome. A timeline is provided below to give a high-level summary of the key dates. To date, we have faced numerous planning hurdles but we remain committed to delivering this exemplary scheme that will transform the town centre.

Planning Summary 

We have resubmitted the Outline Application to increase the commercial floorspace by 43% to provide 64,480sqft. The application can be found on the planning portal by clicking here.

We need your support so please register and provide your comment directly on the Planning website. We want to work collaboratively with the town to ensure the commercial space is deliverable and successful, complementing the existing town centre.


Do you want to work at Saxonvale?


Please also let us know if you are interested in occupying the commercial floorspace by contacting us on the Contact page 

Parkland, Footbridge and Play Area Planning Application


We have previously submitted the first reserved matters (detailed) application for the parkland, play area and footbridge following consultation in Spring 2023.

This application has been consulted on and will be considered following the outcome of the outline application.


As a reminder the parkland application will provide the following;

•Pedestrian footbridge linking to town centre and Rodden Meadow

•Equipped play park with picnic area with a Teenage swing overlooking the park

•Pond for education, paddling and pond dipping

•Conversation Circle: circle of stones to encourage outdoor events

•Long Picnic Table: to be used by community for social events

•A Community Hut – place to shelter adjacent to the Nature Priority Area to be used for education purposes

•Boules court

•Community Orchard; providing fruit trees for shared fruit produce and community raised timber planters for community food and herb production.

•Water point - Free drinking water 24/7.

•Information / Interpretation Boards for nature and ecology

•Public Bike Tools and Pump

•Indicative Café to overlook the playpark and community facilities, to be submitted in the next reserved matters application
