Wichelstowe - March 2016
Welcome to the latest edition of our Cornerstone newsletter. Here you’ll find all the latest news about Wichelstowe, the wonderful new homes development that’s taking shape in East Wichel, Swindon.
Looking to the future at Wichelstowe
These are exciting times at Wichelstowe with the development nearing the final phases of construction and around 300 Taylor Wimpey new homes now completed.
Work to finish the footpaths and cycle ways in phase 2 is due to take place soon. This will include the paths to Nunwick Way and Ravensdale, along the STAr (Sustainable Transport Artery) route between Arnhill Road and Eyam Road, in Eyam Road and in Langdean Road and Brentforte.
Construction and remedial works will be undertaken so that the roads and footways at Wichelstowe can be adopted by Swindon Borough Council, but in the meantime Taylor Wimpey will retain responsibility for the maintenance of the roads.
Residents are also reminded that the bus lane at the development is for use by authorised heavy goods vehicles only, and is under CCTV surveillance – so please avoid using this route or you will be issued with a ticket.
New homes for early birds in East Wichel!
Taylor Wimpey is not only building fantastic new houses and apartments at Wichelstowe – it’s also providing new homes for birds.
The leading local housebuilder donated five nest boxes to nearby East Wichel Community Primary School and Nursery as part of National Nest Box Week in February.
The school hopes that it will provide a home for breeding birds and also be an exciting observation project for the pupils as eggs are laid and chicks hatch.
