Making sure everyone has a place fit to call home has always been Nationwide’s mission. And that’s why it set out to design and fund a not-for-profit development of quality, sustainable homes with a focus on community.

Swindon Borough Council

Swindon Borough Council has set a priority to improve infrastructure and housing to support a growing, low-carbon economy. One of the ways they’re doing that is by working with us to rejuvenate the former Oakfield campus, a brownfield site that has been empty for a number of years.
