The scheme is available to those with a local connection and comprises of houses, bungalows and flats.

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 first phase of the homes were completed in 2018 and are available to residents of Pilton and nearby surrounding areas. The second phase of the scheme began in May 2022 and will be complete and ready for occupation from April 2023.
