An outline planning application has been submitted to Swindon Borough Council for up to 2,380 homes as part of the Eastern Villages expansion of the town.

The urban extension to the east of Swindon and north of the A420 in the St Margaret and South Marston area for the dwellings has been submitted by Taylor Wimpey UK, Hallam and Hannick care of David Lock Associates.

The plan is for 2,380 homes together with a mixed use of local centre/areas including 1,500sq metres of retail development to include restaurants, pubs and takeaways and other businesses as well as community uses and sheltered/care accommodation.

It also includes plans for two primary schools, open space and play and sports facilities.

The application also proposes sustainable drainage systems, highway, cycle and pedestrian routes and engineering works including ground remodelling, demolition and site reclamation and removal of structures.

The formation of new accesses from the A420, Old Vicarage Lane and Thornhill Road also form part of the proposal.
