Our Future Development

Future development plans at the Lantern Community

Our current major projects are:-

The “Old Pottery” Independent Housing Development

We are extremely pleased to report that this project is now finalised and ready for its two new occupants, and was officially opened on the 21st March, and christened “Cydonia”. The plans can be viewed here

The Eco-Garden and Craft Centre Landscaping

The fields adjacent to our Nursery and the area around the new Craft Centre are being developed to a defined landscaping plan to include ponds, waterfalls, tree planting and pathways. We feel it important to create, support and maintain an environment that is in balance and also has an aesthetic and healing potential. In combination with the Nursery, the garden will offer a peaceful setting both for visitors and the Community to enjoy.

All of the work required to develop the garden is being carried out by our own committed and experienced Land group and gardener, and the expected cost of the project will be in the region of £25,000. Please see downloads on the right of this page.

 The “Barn and Old Weavery” House Development

We are now in the process of planning for the development and refurbishment of  Barn and the adjoining old Weavery. Although in the early stages, we would hope to increase our residential places available. This will be a significant development which will call heavily on our available resources.

The Lantern Craft Centre Development

Our new Craft Centre, having been opened on the 27th September 2014, was entered for the prestigious RIBA Regional Awards 2015. Emma, Clare and Simon attended a dinner in Bath on the 1st May on behalf of the Lantern Community at which the winners would be announced. We are very happy to report that our architects,  CaSA  won an award for the design of the buildings.  For interest, a range of photos over the timeframe of building the Craft Centre can be viewed via the link to our blog below.
