The Parish of Thurleigh.

  Thurleigh stands on a 250ft high plateau, said to be the largest in England. The parish consists of about 3,400 acres of clay soil.

About 750 people live in the village in about 250 dwellings. The village is spread across 5 ends - Church End, Cross End, Scald End, Backnoe End and Park End - that cover an area of about 6 square miles.

Community life continues to thrive with regular events held at the Village Hall, the Church, the Playing Field Club and the Jackal Public House.


Proposed Composting Development at Coplar Farm

  The Parish Council has recently received a copy of Growing Bed application to relocate from Ravensden to Thurleigh. The Parish Council will oppose the application and a campaign group has been started with the same aim.

The campaign's website gives more details about the application and how to write an objection letter.

Neighbourhood Development Plan

  Villages across the country have been asked to create a plan of how they would like to see their village evolve. This plan requires as many of the villagers as possible in the consultation process so that we can have a democratic view of how the village is viewed and how we wish it to progress, especially in light of the growing housing needs across the Borough.

A steering group has recently been set up to establish a Thurleigh Neighbourhood Development Plan. This steering group is made up of a small team of parishioners representing the different areas of our village. However, we will be asking everyone to take part in this plan as we progress through the different stages.
