Green Lane – some sections to be closed by Wessex Water (TTRO 5395)
To enable Wessex Water to carry out sewer installation works, involving excavating trenches, some sections of Green Lane will be closed to all traffic including pedestrians. It is understood that Wessex Water should be writing to all residents of Green Lane to advise of the scheduling of this work which commences on 9 July 2018 and will continue in phases through to 24 October.
Green Lane – work to be carried out by Wessex Water
The first phase starts on 9 July and will carry on until 23 July. This involves closure of a stretch of the byway in the vicinity of the old Squash Courts at the northern end.
This will be followed immediately by the second phase which runs for 6 weeks through to 31 August from a point between the two green barriers to point south of the farm buildings.
The third phase will follow on from the above and will last for 8 weeks through to 24 October. This will run from the south side of the Roman Road through to the pumping station.
Wessex Water will try to keep the path open when essential works are not being carried out and when there are no potential Health and Safety issues. They advise further that potentially the restricted byway could be made safe and opened at the weekends.

This item will be updated by the Parish Council as and when further information is available.

Our Parish Plan outlined the need for the following action:
"The Parish Council will continue to secure representation from the four              communities and will seek further ways to improve its association with them for example by rotating  the venue of Parish meetings."

Future Parish Council meetings will be held at Old Sarum         Community Centre, Hampton Park (Greentrees School) and Laverstock  at River Bourne Community Farm on a rolling programmed basis.
The next Parish Council  meeting will be held on Monday 20th August  at River Bourne Community Farm 7pm
Residents are welome to attend.
Residents can address the council with any concerns for up to 3  minutes before the meeting proper starts.
Details of meetings and agenda are to be found on our

Planning Applications

The PC is providing a table which lists the Planning Applications that have been referred to the Parish Council for their opinion. Applications are generally considered by a team of three
Councillors, but may occasionally be referred to the whole Council. Full details may be viewed on the Wiltshire Council website.
The RESPONSE is the view of the Parish Council and will be considered, along with other consultations, by Wiltshire Council, who will make the decision.

Area Boards

Giving power back to the people
What is an Area Board?

The Area Boards are a new way of working to bring local decision making back into the heart of the community. They are a formal part of Wiltshire Council that try to find solutions for local issues such as road repairs, traffic problems and speeding in villages, litter, facilities for young people and affordable housing.

People who work with the 18 Area Boards include councillors, community area managers, democratic service officers together with one member of the council’s top decision making committee, the cabinet. It also includes the local NHS, fire and emergency services, police, town and parish councils, community area partnerships and many other groups.

By working in partnership with local communities, the council can achieve so much more than it ever could on its own. We hope this will lead to better services, better communities and a better quality of life for everyone in Wiltshire.
