Wixams

Wixams New Settlement  new settlement is 3 miles (5km) south Wixams Indicative mapof Bedford and covers an area of approximately 384 hectares.  Based upon the site of the former Elstow Storage Depot it will eventually establish a community of around 10,000 people with the potential to expand to around 15,000. It will represent the single largest development in the county and straddles the border between Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire.

 

Wixams will include a town centre and several “villages” with 4500 homes, 25 per cent of which will be affordable homes, employment land, schools, shops, generous landscaping and recreational space such as sports pitches and allotments and community buildings.  The streets will be designed with safety in mind and to facilitate ease of movement using public transport, cycles and walking.  Planning permission has recently been approved for the new rail station located on the western edge of the Wixams development which will provide links with Bedford and Central London stations once completed.
