Development Plans

The Wixams settlement is a new town under construction since 2007. It was originally conceived as a town of four villages:

  1. Lakeview – Now complete and furthest to the East of the settlement
  2. Willow Grove – Under construction by David Wilson and Barratt Homes
  3. Cromwell Place – Under construction and will include the town centre
  4. Harrowden Green – Under construction and will include the Station Quarter

To the south of Harrowden Green will be the Wixam Park development, an extension to the original Wixams masterplan and also known as village 5.

Please note the images and plans on this page are not finalised and are likely to change.
