Boundary Review Update
The full council of Wiltshire Council met on 12th July to vote on the recommendations of the Boundary Review Committee.
The results were as follows:
Scheme 100: That Laverstock remains independent of Salisbury
65 For, 4 against, 2 abstentions.
Scheme 2: That 300 houses in Bishopdown Farm come over from the City to Laverstock & Ford
34 For, 30 against, 3 abstentions.
This result is due not only to the hard work which your parish councillors and Wiltshire Councillors Ian McLennan & Bill Moss carried out to fight for its independence but heavily on the active support shown by our loyal residents.
Thank you to all who voiced their views and persuaded Wiltshire Councillors to vote in favour of our parish.

Old Sarum Airfield Update
Latest update 5th June 2016
Further meeting of Parish Councillors and residents to discuss the revised plans for the proposed airfield development (15/04004/OUT), information on the recent Flying Forum held at Old Sarum Airfield and problems with the Wiltshire Council planning website when trying to post a consultation response.
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 22nd August at River Bourne Community Farm at 7pm.
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.
