Vision and Lifestyle

Wichelstowe is designed to combine a wide range of housing choices with an exceptional living environment. Retail, commercial, education and leisure facilities will all come together to create vibrant communities. Each of the villages – West, Middle and East Wichel – will have its own design style and ‘feel’, whilst sharing carefully planned infrastructure and facilities.
