Boundary Review Update
Thank you to all of the residents who attended the packed meeting at Wyvern College with many residents giving excellent speeches as to why the parish should remain independent of Salisbury City.

The Review Committee members left fully aware of the residents' strength of feeling about the review.

What happens now?
The review committee will report their recommendations to a full meeting of Wiltshire Council in Trowbridge on Tuesday 12th Jul 2016 - 10:30 am after which the council members will vote on the recommendations.

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 20th June at    Old Sarum Community Centre at 7:30pm.
This is our Annual Meeting , Residents are welcome to attend.
Details of meetings and agenda are to be found on our  Minutes page.

The Parish Council and residents meet with Barton Willmore for the long awaited second meeting shortly after revised plans are published on the Wiltshire Council planning website.

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.
