Taunton is the administrative, economic, retail and cultural centre of Somerset and one of the best connected towns in the South West.
It has a rich history, combining fine architectural buildings and commercial success with a modern and lively town centre spanning the River Tone.
Project Taunton is a town-wide regeneration initiative which recognises the opportunity to further contribute to the continued growth and prosperity of Taunton. As such, it now represents one of the largest regeneration programmes in the South West. Project Taunton will deliver the “Vision for Taunton”, a Vision which includes the high quality,
sustainable regeneration of four key areas of Somerset’s principal town, comprising approximately 124 acres of under-utilised land.
Firepool is the first key area being delivered. Totalling 16.5 acres, it will form the new commercial heart of Taunton alongside the River Tone and adjacent to Taunton’s main line railway station and town centre.
Firepool is situated opposite the County Cricket Ground within easy reach of Taunton’s extensive retail and leisure facilities, theatre, high quality educational establishments and the town’s unique natural environment which includes The Quantocks and Blackdown Hills.
