PARISH COUNCIL GRANT SCHEME
The Parish Council operates a small community grant scheme. It is funded from income unconnected with council tax.
The Council encourages applications from local community based, ‘not for profit’ or charitable organisations e.g. voluntary groups, societies, clubs (including new startups), sports clubs, youth clubs, playgroups, and Community Projects.

“We are all of a buzz to learn that the Salisbury Bee City Trail which Laverstock and Ford Parish Council supports as a main Sponsor, has won a national award this week and have been nominated as one of 17 Pollinator Champions.
The Bee City Team received their award from Minister for Rural Affairs and Biosecurity, Lord Gardiner who commented:
“We must all be thankful for our essential pollinators who do such vital work on our behalf, flying from crop to crop, tree to tree, helping us to grow our food. The champions I had the pleasure to meet today are doing exceptional things to return the favour and look after our pollinators. We must not leave them to it. We can all play a part.”
The Bee City team will be holding a series of talks at each bee stop including our own bee stop in Laverstock next summer. In the meantime if you haven’t collected your virtual Laverstock bee from our stop here is the link on how to download the Bee City Apps!”

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 18th December at River Bourne Community Farm Laverstock 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.
Details of meetings and agenda are to be found on our
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.
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.
