Architecture company Adam Architecture has had plans approved for the extension to the village of Norton St Phillip.
The planning application for the village, which lies 13.7km south of Bath, includes the addition of 51 new homes, a shop, a market building and commercial office space.
Mendip District Council approved the plans, along with the parish council.
The plans for the village, located in the Somerset hills, with around 300 homes, were also praised by members of the planning committee for their design.
Adam Architecture’s Robert Adam said the project was an exciting one for the firm.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to add to this beautiful and charming place. We’ve worked with its character and created new streets full of variety and interest,” he said.
Work should start on site in the next nine to 12 months.
