About the New Eastern Villages (NEV)
The New Eastern Villages (NEV) is one of the largest greenfield developments in the country. It will consist of 8,000 homes, new schools, employment spaces and community and leisure facilities.
It will be located to the east of the A419 and is estimated to span 724 hectares, with its eastern boundary reaching the point at which the River Cole meets the A420.
Key cycling and pedestrian routes will be incorporated in the development and there will be plenty of green spaces, including a nature reserve, playing fields and allotments.
The district centre and new secondary school will be particularly important in establishing a sense of place and reducing pressures on existing facilities in Swindon. A GP surgery will also be built along with a library and numerous other community facilities.
In order to allow the development to progress, a number of highways improvement schemes are due to take place. You can find out more about these on the NEV Transport webpages.
