Road Closure in Ford
Commencing on Mon 23 July, work will start to install a Traffic Calming Scheme in Ford. It will include new road signs but the main work will be the construction of 3 new calming features on the C287, the Roman Road, which will be carried out in 3 phases.
The work is expected to take approximately 4 weeks and will require the closure of the C287 to through motor traffic. Maps provided by Wiltshire Council Highways, which can be seen here, show the extent of the closure and the planned phasing of the work.  A letter from Wiltshire Council, which contains a little more information, was sent to residents of Ford advising of this work and can be seen here.
UPDATE as at 6 Aug - The ground work and signage on the 3 build-outs appears to be complete; lighting and some road markings on the approach to each have still to be completed. Work also continues with the additional  signage at the terminal points to the village and the points where roads narrow.
Green Lane – some sections to be closed by Wessex Water (TTRO 5395)

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 20th August  at River Bourne Community Farm 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

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.
