Old Sarum Airfield Update
Further meeting of Parish Councillors and residents to discuss the revised plans for the proposed airfield development (15/04004/OUT), information on the recent Flying Forum held at Old Sarum Airfield and problems with the Wiltshire Council planning website when trying to post a consultation response.
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 March 20th at Old Sarum Community Centre at 7pm.
Residents are welome to attend.
Residents can address the council with any concerns for up to 3 minutes before the meeting proper starts.
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.
