Grass Cutting

Late last year the parish council agreed to fund extra grass cutting throughout the parish.

idVerde quoted for the work which involved additional grass cutting at the churchyard, Lacock Gardens, Wyke Road (junction of Foxglove Drive and Towpath Road), Millards Close and Stourton Park.

The extra cuts have NOT been carried out and the parish council is investigating what has gone wrong.

Apologies for the unkempt appearance of these areas.

Progress Report 12th May 2017

After some delays caused by the change in parish boundary which came into force on 1st April 2017, I am delighted to report that we now have a draft plan and supporting documents which can be published. The documents are available for download below.  The next stage of the project is a 6 week consultation period during which various statutory bodies and of course parish residents can submit comments on the draft plan.

The consultation period runs until 30th June 2017 and a form on which comments can be made is also available for download. Printed copies of the documents will be on display by 20th May 2017 at various locations including the Churches, village hall, the primary school,  garden centre, Lion & Fiddle and Trowbridge library. There will also be a presentation on the draft plan at the village fete on 10th June 2017 where copies of the response form will also be available.

Once all the comments have been received and analysed, they will, where appropriate be incorporated into the documents which  will then be sent to Wiltshire Council for examination. Eventually a referendum will be held on the agreed plan which will only be adopted if the majority vote in favour.
