Statement on Access to Old Sarum Airfield

Following the circulation of the Resident’s Neighbourhood Plan Questionnaire, Old Sarum Airfield Limited have asked us to make the following points clear on access to the airfield.

“Old Sarum Airfield is a commercial operation on private land and access is only open to those invited or authorised by the owners of the airfield. The airfield property provides no rights of public access and any unauthorised access is trespass, with unauthorised incursion into the licenced aerodrome being a criminal offence. The airfield property is fenced to prevent unauthorised access and we take significant steps to remove those persons who enter the property unlawfully as they create danger to themselves and others including authorised users".

Dated Monday 11 November 2019 Dr Carlton Brand
Acting Returning Officer
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 monthly Parish Council meeting will be held on Monday 18th November at Old Sarum Community Centre at 7pm. Residents are welcome 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
Old Sarum Airfield Planning Application Appeal Public Enquiry
The Appeal Decision has been announced for Planning Application 15/04004/OUT which included the construction of 462 dwellings on the airfield. The appeal has been dismissed by the Inspector and planning permission has been refused.

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.
