Wichelstowe

Urban extension to Swindon

Location: Swindon, Wiltshire

Commission: Project Management, Cost Management, Consultancy

Approx. Value: £1 Billion

Project Management of the Planning Promotion Phase of this 4,500 dwelling mixed use Urban Extension to Swindon. The project also includes a district Centre (with high street and supermarket), two local centres, four schools, a Country Park and a 750,000SF Business Park. The infrastructure incorporates a three kilometre stretch of the Wilts & Berks Canal, three offsite road junctions and a road tunnel under the M4.

As Taylor Wimpey’s representative on the Wichelstowe project, I worked with Tom Farrow for six years as we took this £1 Billion scheme through the very complex Planning Promotion process. Tom’s professional input and unstinting commitment to the project was directly responsible for the very successful Planning Permission achieved, which sets this major project on its course.
