New Flats

Had a look at the new flats at Firepool that seem to have been under construction for some time now.

The design is actually quite modern in appearance and Taunton has always been sadly lacking when it comes to modern apartment design.   The name of the development “Waterside House” seems a bit boring though.

I’m wondering why these flats were built in such a “cut off” part of the town.     There do not appear to be any local amenities in the area such as shops, restaurants or even a pub but presumably the plan is for these to follow at a later stage.

I guess they are only 5 minutes walk from the station and 5 minutes drive from the M5 once the new road is linked up with existing roads, but they are currently cut off by the river tone and the canal.
