Read the Parish Council view on the proposed development on Old Sarum Airfield
The Atkins Report which shows why the airfield was designated a conservation area.
Extract: After Duxford in Cambridgeshire and Leuchars in Scotland,
Old Sarum retains the most complete group of technical buildings
representative of a Training Depot Station of the First World War
period. Despite the destruction of one of the original three paired
hangars, this is one of the most complete hangar groupings of the
period up to 1918 in Britain, uniquely relating to an airfield that has
been less altered than any other pre-
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 (Primary School), Hampton Park (Greentrees School) and Laverstock (PC Office at River Bourne Community Farm) on a rolling programmed basis.
The next meeting of the Parish Council will be held at River Bourne Community Farm, Cow Lane, Laverstock at 7pm on Monday 17th March 2014. Residents are welcome to attend.
Details of meetings and agenda are to be found on our Meetings page.
The PC is providing a which table 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.

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.
