EU REFERENDUM: Cameron in Swindon 

PM praises award-winning Tadpole Garden development on eve of big vote
On the final day of campaigning ahead of the EU Referendum, Prime Minister David Cameron was Swindon to argue the importance of remaining in the EU to ensure a stable housing market in the UK.
Mr Cameron visited Crest Nicholson’s Tadpole Garden Village development near Blunsdon accompanied by the Minister of State for Housing and MP for Great Yarmouth, Brandon Lewis, and former Labour deputy leader Harriett Harman.

Crest Nicholson CEO Stephen Stone and Tadpole Garden Village Project Manager Alan Blandford greeted the ministers following their arrival on the Remain campaign’s ‘Stronger in Europe’ bus.
The ministers then enjoyed a tour of the development and were introduced to Crest Nicholson’s South West Managing Director Tom Dwyer and decorating apprentice Maisie Lapham, both of whom then joined the ministers aboard the ‘Stronger in Europe’ bus as it continued its journey.

Brandon Lewis MP commented, “The job of politicians is to do everything we can to help people get on in life – to buy that first home, providing stability and a place to raise a family.
“Crest Nicholson's development here in Wiltshire is a fantastic example of the homes we're working together to build and the investment that would be put at risk if we leave the EU. Families are better off in Europe, and they can’t afford a vote to leave.”
Tadpole Garden Village is a greenfield highly-sustainable development set in a 179-hectare rural location on the outskirts of Blunsdon St. Andrew.
It will eventually provide 1,695 two, three, four and five bedroom homes and a local centre, public house, primary school and a range of community buildings.
It is one of the only developments in the UK delivering on the basis of Garden Village Principles.
The introduction of a Community Interest Company (CIC), which puts decision-making power in the hands of the Tadpole Garden Village residents, was recognised in the National Housebuilder Awards 2015 for “Best Community Initiative”.
