Wichelstowe is a carefully planned, sustainable urban extension for Swindon.

Located to the North of the M4 between Junction 16 and Croft Road, Wichelstowe will include three neighbourhoods: East Wichel, Middle and West Wichel. Together they will include up to 4,500 homes, employment space, public open space, including a country park, shopping and community facilities for residents and primary schools.

The first new homes were occupied on 2009. Development is expected to continue until around 2025, depending on market conditions.
