Vallis Road, Frome.

This scheme will feature 64 carbon-negative homes of sustainable construction and high energy performance that have been built using innovative prefabricated straw bale panels.

Constructed by Sustainable Britain, the homes will comprise apartments, two and three storey homes offering from one to four bedrooms.

In addition to offering super-insulated homes that are affordable to run and heat, there will be eight units suitable for small businesses. By creating a mix of homes, workplaces and public areas alongside the Vallis Road Trading Estate, less than a mile from the town centre, the development will foster a genuine community atmosphere from the outset.
