Houses at GWP

Great Western Park

Great Western Park (GWP) is a high quality development of 3,300 new homes that straddles the Didcot/Harwell boundary.

Building work started in 2011 and so far more than 1,000 homes have been occupied. 

There is already a good sense of community and a very active residents' association This link will take you to an external website... .  In 2015 we are opening the first community centre as well as a youth shelter and two play areas.  By 2024 the site will include multiple sports pitches, a park, pavilion, more community centres, more plays areas, allotments and 48 hectares of open and urban space. 

In September 2015 UTC Oxfordshire, which specialise in life sciences, physical sciences and engineering opened its doors at a new site on Greenwood Way for 600 boys and girls aged 14 to 19.  Two primary schools and a secondary school will also be located on GWP.

The road running through GWP is named after Sir Frank Williams CBE, Team Principal of Williams F1 in recognition the contribution that he has made to the local area since forming Williams Grand Prix Engineering at an empty industrial unit in 1977, just a short distance away.
