A 25-hectare strategic employment site in Taunton

Nexus 25 is a strategic employment site that is currently at the planning stage based in Taunton. The 25-hectare site offers direct access onto the M5 motorway and the enhanced A358. Our team, in conjunction with LHC Design, was appointed by Taunton Deane Borough Council (TDBC) to prepare an LDO and all associated supporting planning material to deliver Nexus 25.

Nexus 25 will provide a range of flexible premises providing accommodation for research and development, health, education, and digital technology alongside high-quality office space, light industrial units and warehouses. Designed as a ‘Green Campus,’ the site will include walkways and landscaping to create an environment in line with Taunton’s new Garden Town status.

The LDO helps to deliver this strategically important site which will encourage business and create new jobs while contributing to TDBC’s ambitious growth plans for Taunton. Access to the site will be provided following completion of the Somerset County Council M5 Junction 25 improvement scheme. 

Work on the new Nexus 25 employment site near Taunton is expected to start in 2020 following an upgrade of Junction 25 of the M5. The site could eventually include a school, a hotel and health centre, as well as providing office space and being home to an innovation hub for businesses.
