Sandpit Road housing developers want to hear village views
Developers of the new housing estate at the end of Sandpit Road are keen to hear the views of Thorney residents.
They say these will be taken into consideration before final plans are drawn up.
An exhibition, showing the proposed layout of the estate, was held at the Bedford Hall on Thursday and about a hundred people attended. Many left response forms.
Peter Moore of development consultants Bletsoes told Thorney Post the reaction from people visiting had been generally positive. A few suggestions had been noted and people who weren’t able to make it can still comment via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A planning application is likely to go to the Peterborough City Council this month and building work may start in late 2016 or early 2017.
The mix of homes will include small terraces, semi-detached, detached and bungalows and housing density will be relatively low – around 25 homes per hectare, compared to 30-35 on most new developments.
