The hoardings

A hoarding is a temporary structure of solid construction, erected around the perimeter of construction sites to shield them from view and prevent unauthorised access.

Over three weekends during the summer of 2021 the Quantock Landscape Partnership Scheme worked with local residents in North Taunton to create a wonderful nature-inspired mural on their doorstep.

Low Carbon Specifications

The new homes at North Taunton are of a Low Carbon design, we would like to show you the energy saving technology in each of these properties, that is aimed to minimise heat loss and maintain the internal temperatures to a comfortable level.
