A number of graduate job positions could become available in the Chard area in the future as plans continue to progress for the town to undergo a vast amount of redevelopment.
The Chard and Ilminster News reports that the work that has already been carried out at the Boden Mill site has been approved by the South Somerset District Council and Chard Town Council.
Meanwhile, further consultations with local residents are to take place early next year, with the completed work expected to have a range of positive results for the area, including the creation of more jobs.
According to the publication, Cllr Peter Seib, the district council's economic development and planning spokesperson, said: "During 2009 the people of Chard and its surrounding area have been debating what sort of place Chard should be in 20 years' time.
"Through the work which has been done together, we now know that there is an ambition for growth, we have a broad framework for roads, employment and much more and have a good grip on the public funding that will be needed to make it all happen."
Those looking for graduate jobs in Wakefield could also see a rapid growth in supply if plans are approved for a new community stadium that will be the home of the Wakefield Wildcats rugby league team.
The stadium is to form part of a far larger development that will additionally integrate hotels, restaurants and warehousing.
