The Wixam’s development plan is inspired by Ebeneezer Howard’s Garden City Movement where open space and landscape work together with buildings to create distinctive places.
With Lakeview village and its facilities now successfully serving the community the next stage is to continue with the development of three further villages so that this inspiration regeneration scheme of Wixams can be fully utilised and allow the community that live within it to flourish.
Whilst Lakeview is still a fledgling community, it is already developing its own sense of identity. The Wixams Community Group has been formed and has set up its own web site where information on the latest news and activities can be found.

Village Two will benefit from being adjacent to the new town centre and being bound to the north by a Greenway. It will ideally be located for the new secondary school. It will feature a village park and its own village centre.
Village Three, the hub of the Wixams development, will provide the majority of the community buildings, including a first class medical centre and major shopping facilities. The plan includes an area dedicated to a substantial town park in this part of the development. This will provide residents and visitors alike ample recreation space. There will also be dedicated sports grounds.
Village Four will be based around the proposed Railway Station, offering direct access to Bedford, London St. Pancras (45 mins) and the wider regions. It will be communication centre of the Wixams development.
