There are two large new settlements planned or in planning for our deanery. One is an extension of Cambourne to the west and the other is a self-contained settlement of over 3000 houses in planning for an old airfield on the northwest boundary of the Lordsbridge Team. The ecumenical Area Mission Partnership, set up to represent the churches and church groups on the ground, has been tasked by Bourn deanery synod to keep a watching brief on the district planning process with a view to collaborating on a local mission strategy for the airfield development in the next few years.
