What 3 Words describes Frome Town Development History well

This is a great idea. Every 3m x 3m square on Earth assigned a unique three word mapping address. Try it out at ///illogical.backyard.ember

Some critics of this method of addressing every three metre square of the two dimensions of a flat Earth have suggested that the algorithms used to generate the sequence of words could be deliberately modified to produce tailored results. It does seem an unlikely coincidence that the Saxonvale site in Frome is given the address ///decide.empty.kept

The Frome Saxonvale site has been empty for over twenty years. Locals can influence, change, support and learn more here.

Based in Shepton Mallet

Fromester supports almost any active use of the 9.2 acre town centre site (approx 37,000 square metres) owned by Mendip DC and the additional smaller plot owned by Frome TC.

Top of the list of preferred uses is a market garden producing fruit and veg for the local population. It seems like a no brainer in the current social, economic and political climes but does not fully maximise profits for the extinction bound Mendip District Council.

For over 20 years successive development attempts have produced little commitment from the private sector.

The majority of the Saxonvale area was previously used to slaughter cows, pigs and sheep or anything requiring a bolt through the head.

How about a market garden in the centre of Frome producing vegetables and fruit for sale locally, providing horticultural employment, education, using a balanced approach for the future use of our publicly owned land? Top science experts and optimistic clever locals have generously estimated that a brownfield site can harvest around £250.00 per annum per square metre from a combination of aquaculture and hydroponic farming techniques, roughly £9m per year using the entire Saxonvale site to provide Frome with some cheap fresh local veg.

Acorn Property Group (///bumpy.sweat.wedge) will present their initial proposals for development of the site on Friday (15/2/19) and Saturday (16/2/19) at the Silk Mill.
