The Silk Mill is working with Andrew Kirby Architects and local resident and fellow Social Value Architect Jonny Buckland, to develop a ‘constraints and opportunities’ plan. Our aim is to ‘prompt’ the basis of a ‘community brief’, where you can have your say about what you think is needed in Frome and how it will be provided on this site.
This will be a mix of affordable housing, flexible local business incubation units, workspace and office, independent retail, artisan shops and live-work. Please engage and contribute to this process with your thoughts about this site and what you think Frome needs.
These contributions will assist in defining the wider options for site, and will be developed in further detail as the masterplan evolves. Building uses, scale, relationship with the town, public spaces, materials, environmental standards will all be considered.
