Phase of the Project

Queens Drive Phase 1B

Supporting Swindon Borough Council to provide a range of quality, affordable housing opportunities to buy and rent.

Queens Drive Phase 1B, consisting of 102 homes of which 34 houses and 68 apartments, is the second phase of a new housing development. This will provide high quality affordable homes for rent or purchase in Swindon.

The development will act as a gateway to Swindon town centre, the new homes have been carefully designed to pay homage to Swindon’s famous heritage as a rail industry powerhouse. The apartments will be carefully constructed using the same grid formation of the site’s former engine sheds, which used to house, repair and maintain trains.

The project will involve the construction of all associate road works and external landscaping.

Willmott Dixon has carried out several successful projects for Swindon Borough Council, most recently completing William Morris Primary School.

Nick Kemmett, Housing Strategy and Development Manager, Swindon Borough Council said:

“We are delighted to see the scheme progressing to the next phase and providing much needed quality, energy efficient affordable homes to the Town.”
