roadside plots

Benefitting from its prominent location alongside the A421, Bedford Commercial Park offers two acres of prime roadside plots for a range of park amenities, available for sale.

Providing opportunities from 0.5 acres, the site is perfectly placed for retail, leisure and trade uses, including a coffee drive-thru, restaurant, hotel, convenience store and gym. With 1,100 new homes currently under construction by Persimmon, Bellway and Taylor Wimpey in neighbouring Wootton, the park offers great opportunities for convenience retailing and leisure. 

The site also includes a children’s nursery, recently completed by Bedford Borough Council.
