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%

Latest update 1 Mar 2015

Further letter to Dr Carlton Brand dated 23 Feb 2015

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 on Monday 20th April 2015 at River Bourne Community Farm Laverstock
from 7pm.
Residents are welcome to attend.
Details of meetings and agenda are to be found on our  Meetings page.

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.
