Taunton’s derelict livestock market site transformed into £105m cinema, shops and hotel


stream_img-1One of the largest regeneration projects in the South West could see a former livestock market in the centre of Taunton transformed into a shopping and leisure complex.

New plans have been unveiled of the £105m development which would deliver a brand new waterfront community with a vibrant mix of offices, shops and restaurants, a cinema, hotel and new homes and apartments to the old cattle market site at Firepool behind the River Tone.

In 2015, work commenced to deliver the first 49 residential apartments and town houses overlooking the river Tone.
