Proposed Boundary Changes
Over 1,000 households responded to our recent ballot about the Salisbury City Parish Council’s vote that they should incorporate our parish into the city. The result was that our residents overwhelmingly voted, by 99.3% that the parish should remain independent from the city. Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote.
Residents have spoken, your Parish Council will continue to fight this proposed take-over.
Laverstock & Ford Parish communities to remain independent of Salisbury 99.3%
Laverstock & Ford Parish to be wholly absorbed by Salisbury 0.7%
VOLUNTEER PARISH FOOTPATH WARDEN
Parish Councillors are seeking to appoint a volunteer from within the Parish to take on the role of Footpath Warden. The Parish is fortunate to have around nine miles of footpaths, bridleways and Permitted Rights of Way. There are also Trails and Open Access land. The Parish consider them to be a great asset for residents and we are seeking ways in which they can be promoted and get better used.
The successful volunteer will be a resident who is an enthusiastic walker and would be prepared to give a few hours every week to walk the paths and promote the network.
If you are interested please contact our Parish Clerk for further details. The post is fully supported by Parish Councillors and our Parish Environmental Group. The appointment will be for one year initially and could be shared between several enthusiastic walkers. Closing date for applications 31st Jan 2015
