Parish Council News – March 2011

Application to Register the Playing Field as a Village Green

Approximately 30 villagers attended the meeting of the Parish Council on Tuesday 15th February to share views and ask the Parish Council questions during the open 10 minutes. Later in the evening, the Parish Council voted not to oppose the application to register the playing field as a village green.

Village Expansion

Over 30 people attended a meeting on 7th February that considered the preliminary draft of Swindon’s Core Strategy as it affects the village. Frustration was expressed that the promised Traffic Study and recommendations for the EDA being prepared by Swindon were not available. It was agreed to meet again once this was produced with the aim of preparing for a full village meeting.

Parish Council Community Funding

The Parish Council currently have limited funds available. Support may be given in certain circumstances for the village to seed community events and to help village groups to become established.

If you are interested, please make requests in writing to the Parish Council and send to the Clerk, Gemma Cheal at 75 Stratton Road, Lower Stratton, Swindon SN1 2PN or email

For further information, please telephone the Clerk on: 01793 820529
