The £2 million development on Neat Lane in Pilton was introduced to The Guinness Partnership by EG Carter Ltd. The land has been gifted to TGPL by Michael Eavis and is near Worthy Farm where Glastonbury Festival is held.

The scheme was available to those with a local connection and comprises of two one bedroom apartments, seven two bedroom houses and four three bedroom houses for affordable rent.

This is a high profile scheme designed to be exemplary, demonstrated by a high quality design and construction including the use of quarried stone from Worthy Farm. The scheme has been designed in line with TGPL Design Brief along with Michael Eavis’ and the Parish Council’s list of specifications which include:

  • extensive use of natural stone
  • Stone cills and arches to the windows
  • the provision of wood burning stoves in all of the houses
  • south facing gardens for all properties

The homes were completed in the summer of  2017 and are available to residents of Pilton and nearby surrounding areas. The project was funded jointly by The Guinness Partnership, Mendip District Council  and Homes and Communities Agency.

In October 2017, Leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, was invited to visit the housing estate by Michael Eavis. He congratulated us on all the hard work we’ve done for the local area.

Please note: The Guinness Partnership remains a politcally neutral organisation.
