Elsea Park estate, Bourne, Lincolnshire
Elsea Park estate, Bourne, Lincolnshire
The estate known as Elsea Park now under construction on 300 acres of agricultural land off the main A15 trunk road to the south of Bourne is the biggest single housing development in the history of the town, creating a population increase that will eventually bring an estimated 6,000 newcomers. A total of 2,000 new homes are being built and although there has been much criticism of the project there have been benefits through the provision of a new south-west relief road (2005), a community centre (2012) and a primary school (2014). Work began in 2001 and by the end of 2014, the halfway stage was in sight and although some people still feel that the estate does not really belong to the old Bourne, rather a new neighbourhood tacked on to the southern edge, this feeling of alienation is slowly disappearing as the two communities weld through social and sporting contact.
