Permission granted to build 182 homes

A residential project in Swindon, Wiltshire has received full planning approval to construct 182 new homes on site.

Known as Wichel Fields, the new properties will become part of the Canalside development on the Wichelstowe urban extension that was originally built back in 2006.

David Wilson Homes and Barratt Homes are constructing the housing development, working in close partnership with Swindon’s Borough Council. The large-scale scheme will see the project provide 3,000 homes in a 20-year timeframe, as well as community facilities and schools. The massive 250-hectare area is based on Swindon’s southernmost edge and will include nature conservation areas, allotments, sports pitches and other open spaces.

Architects in Ruthin, Swindon and other UK towns often work on behalf of developers when they must submit planning applications to local authorities. Able to answer technical questions easily, and to swiftly adapt plans to meet criteria council planners insist on, professional architects can effectively navigate and speed up what can be a complex process.

The 182 brand new homes will now be built to the east of the Canalside project’s initial phase, where homeowners have recently taken up residence in over 80 properties.

Barratt Homes sales director, Andrea Pilgrim, commented:

“Many of the people who’ve moved into the Canalside homes at Wichelstowe have commented on the strong sense of community already developing here, so it’s wonderful that we can now get underway with building more homes for first-time buyers.”

The latest plans to be given the green light also concerned the character, style and overall design of the next phase in the development.
