Kingsway was built on the former RAF Quedgeley site by a consortium of builders and was started in 2006. Building at Hunts Grove started in 2010 and is currently ongoing. Both areas offer a large selection of house types and are well served with purpose built local amenities.
Kingsway Village was built on the former RAF Quedgeley site which was in operation between 1914 and 1995. Located to the far South of Gloucester and accessed from the A38 dual carriage-way, development started in 2006 and included builders such as Barratt Homes, Bromford Homes, Bryant Homes, David Wilson Homes, George Wimpey, Miller Homes, Persimmon, Bloor and Taylor Wimpey. It forms part of Quedgeley Town.
Michael Tuck New Homes were instrumental in selling many of the plots from brand new, and continue to sell and rent property in Kingsway on the second hand market.
The suburb has a current population of about 3000 people and the housing consists of a full mix of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses along with several apartment blocks which can be found at the gateway to the development from the A38 dual carriage way.
