AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM LAVERSTOCK & FORD PARISH COUNCIL
Community Governance Boundary Review – Latest News
Tuesday 24th November saw this review being presented to the full Wiltshire Council for them to vote on.
The Review Committee recommended that the area of Bishopdown Farm currently in the Salisbury City Parish, should be transferred to Laverstock & Ford, and recommended this course of action to the councillors present.
In the meantime, two Wiltshire Councillors, Mary Douglas and Richard Clewer, put forward a motion seeking that “That Council instruct the Working Group to investigate and consult on the merger of Laverstock and Ford Parish into Salisbury City Parish; and bring the matter back to Full Council for a decision at the earliest opportunity.”
This motion was carried by a small majority (47 votes to 38). This means that the recommendations of the committee have been overturned, and a working group will now have to consider if the whole of our parish should be subsumed into Salisbury City.
Watch this space for updates.
