Bourne Bus Project

Published: 23 November 2021

Chidham & Hambrook Parish Council has agreed to support a local bus project that will serve Thorney Island and the Bourne villages. Funded through grants and with considerable backing from Thorney Island barracks, the parish council will help support operational costs with a sum £2,000 and, in each following year £1,000.

A proviso has been added that the Parish Council must have equal participation with all other bodies involved in the project, subject to quarterly reviews during the first year of operation to ensure that residents of the parish are content with the service. The service will be free and will work on a booking system.

Your views are sought with a survey which we would ask you to complete here.
