Great Denham & West of Kempston
Both sites are located to the west of Bedford. Great
Denham (formerly known as land at Biddenham Loop) is now a Parish
in its own right. The site abuts Bedford Golf Club to the
north, Queens Part to the East and the River Great Ouse to the
south. Its West boundary is formed by the newly opened A421
A428 Bedford Western By-pass.
Land west of Kempston is on the south side of the river and is
again contained by the by-pass to the west and the A421 to the
south and by the established edge of Kempston to the east.
The combined sites will provide for up to 2760 dwellings and
7722 square metres of employment space. Also included in this
comprehensive urban extension is: -
Provision of a country park, open space, playing fields,
footpaths/cycle routes, district centres, social housing, schools
and sports/community facilities.
Provision of a Park and Ride from the Great Denham site.
Work on both sites has commenced with approximately
317 homes occupied in Great Denham and approximately 80 homes
occupied in West of Kempston. House occupations are
increasing each month.
House builders currently include David Wilson Homes, Barratt
Homes and Lagan Homes.
