Essential gas main replacement project Shady Bower and Milford Mill Road
Following on from gas main replacement work completed last year on Shady Bower and Milford Mill Road, as previously advised, we now need to return to complete the final connections and installation of a new gas governor – for your information the details as follows… 07/10/19 – we will return to the verge at the junction with Queen Manor Road junction Milford Mill Road to install the new gas governor. No traffic management will be needed at this point.
24/10/19 – 03/11/19
Once the governor has been installed we will need to put up 3 Way traffic lights on the junction Milford Mill Road and Queen Manor Road. The lights are required whilst we replace the final 50 meters off main and abandon the existing gas main that runs over the Bridge.
To help alleviate traffic congestion, all work requiring Traffic lights will be completed over the Half Term.
 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.

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

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.
