Great Stall East - Masterplan capital land

NEV Planning Granted


With the finalisation of the S106 agreement outline planning permission has been granted for 1,550 new homes on land at Great Stall East, just south of the A420 to the east of Swindon. The planning application for the development, which was submitted by Capital Land Strategic Planning, will also deliver a new primary and secondary school, a site for a Park and Ride, as well as a sports hub.

The Capital Land team received a resolution to grant August 2020 and finalised the S106 agreement a year later receiving the grant of planning permission at the end of last month. The team progressed immediately on to the next stage of the planning process working up detailed designs and beginning planning work to discharge conditions since the end of summer last year.

2,500 homes approved at New Eastern Villages


Swindon Borough Council’s planning committee met on the 9th June online to determine the outcome of one of the New Eastern Villages planning applications.

The committee gave outline planning permission for up to 2,500 new homes at Lotmead Farm. The site is located in the centre of the New Eastern Villages and will see the delivery of community facilities, employment use, a primary school, sports pitches and other necessary infrastructure.

The application was initially refused planning but with some changes to the application it was given the green light to proceed. Cllr Gary Sumner, the Cabinet Member responsible for delivering the NEV, said: “I am delighted that the Planning Committee last night gave the thumbs up to the outline plans for Lotmead. This is the largest of the proposed NEV villages and I look forward to receiving more detailed plans at a later date.”

With such a large site being given outline permission in the centre of the NEV it is imperative that the correct infrastructure is in place to service the area.
