Neighbourhood Plan!

The parish council has agreed to underwrite the cost of preparing a Neighbourhood Plan.  This will take quite a while to complete but will have status as Supplementary Planning Guidance.

This means that Wiltshire Council has to take the contents into consideration when preparing plans for housing etc.

It really is essential that one is drawn up a.s.a.p. and willing volunteers are sought by the parish council.  Please contact the Chairman or the parish council clerk for more information.

The Village has recently acquired more land for use as allotments adjoining the playing field in Whaddon Lane.  A small parcel of this land has been set aside to create a Village Orchard and two Parish Councillors: Wolsey Jameson and Pam Fisher along with resident expert Mark Newbery have been asked to get this project up and running.

We are actively seeking ideas and knowledge to help us make this a successful venture, so if anyone has experience of similar projects or knowledge of particular varieties of fruit trees that they can recommend please get in touch, we would love to hear your ideas.

Hilperton Relief Road

The Parish Council have made its opinions known to Wiltshire Council on a number of aspects with regard to the new road and the apparent unwillingness of Wiltshire Council officers to adhere to conditions imposed on the developer years ago. In particular, proposed new speed limits, lack of zebra crossings and the unacceptable state of Trowbridge Road when mud is dragged out of the building site. The Relief Road will be an agenda item at every Parish Council meeting until it is completed, adopted by Wiltshire Council and in use.
