Swindon-based Capital Land has completed the purchase of 212 acres of land at New Eastern Villages (NEV) Great Stall East, a significant step in the largest and most important urban regeneration development in the UK.

The next round of detailed planning is in progress and plans are for work to commence on the site in 2022. The Great Stall East development will be approximately 20% of the NEV development and is set to include 1,550 homes, a secondary school, a park and ride, and a sports hub.

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.
