Wixams, Bedfordshire

Situated three miles to the south of Bedford, the former Elstow Storage Depot is being transformed into a new community, consisting of four villages and offering new homes, jobs, amenities and educational facilities.

Gallagher Estates’ role, as master developer, is to undertake the overall delivery of the scheme, retain responsibility for the delivery of planning obligations and provide a talented and multidisciplinary team which will oversee the development from conception through to completion.

A key feature of this exciting new settlement is the four landscaped greenways that provide a network of public open spaces, including 12 kilometres of footpath and cycle path/leisure routes.

The development also provides a high quality transport package including the provision of a future new railway station and transport interchange, making London a 35 minute commute.

Once completed, Wixams will be home to 4,500 families who will benefit from 300 acres of landscaped parkland and play facilities.

Village One, Lakeview Village, is the first phase of Gallagher Estates’ vision for the redevelopment of this brownfield site, offering new homes, a new primary school, village shop, village hall and recreational facilities for local residents.
