Welcome to the website of the Thorney Post.
The picture selection at the top of the page will look familiar to anyone who knows Thorney.
However, our village is about to change dramatically with news that two new large housing developments are to be built, adding around 160 homes. With plans already passed for a further 40 homes in various smaller pockets, that’s about 200 new dwellings set to be built in the next three years.
There’s no doubt that new homes are needed and the new developments planned seem, in general, to be good quality and in keeping (as far as any new development can be) with the rest of the village.
Such a large increase in housing stock – it’s a 20 per cent increase in the size of the village – will place a strain on certain facilities and infrastructure, including the village school, doctors and roads.
It’s the biggest development Thorney has seen since the Duke of Bedford built the model village!
