We have submitted a reserved matters application for the second phase of development at Greenfields, Ridgeway Farm, Swindon. This scheme will provide upwards of 200 much needed new homes in the area. We have proposed a mixture of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes.
Ridgeway Farm is an on-going Taylor Wimpey development with phase 1 of construction is now well under way. Occupations commenced during November 2014 and residents will continue to move into their new homes until the completion of the overall site. The architectural design of phase 2 will be a continuation of phase 1 and this has been reflected within our application.
As part of our on-going commitments to the local community around Ridgeway Farm, a primary school, playground and large areas of public open space are incorporated in the phase 2 design. All of the public facilities provided within Ridgeway Farm are intended for use by the wider community. Upgrades to existing highway and service networks have already taken place with further improvements intended.
We anticipate that a response to our application will be determined by Wiltshire Council in April 2015. We would then look to commence works on site at phase 2 in summer 2015, should the application gain approval.
