Bourn lies 8 miles south west of Cambridge. The village has one Post Office / shop, there are three public houses, a Primary School, a public hall and a recreation ground. There is also a doctor’s surgery. With its existing level of services and facilities, Bourn has had limited residential development or redevelopment opportunities. Any new building which will affect the character of the conservation area or the general setting of the village has been resisted. The framework of the village has been drawn very close to the existing properties. The new village of Cambourne and Cambourne West lie to the north of this site. The site is within 2 miles of the A1198 leading to the A428 to the north and the A505 to the south.
