Public viewing of Council accounts

Each year, South Marston Parish Council undergo both an internal and external audit to ensure that we are effectively managing our finances and that our internal processes are working.

As part of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (SI 2015 No.234), Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 and the Transparency Code, members of the local electorate are welcome to request to view the accounts of the Council.

Details of this as well as copies of the Annual Return (which is completed as part of our external audit) can be seen below.

Roadworks update: 15th June 2018

As you may have noticed, the roadworks in the village continue but the end is in sight!

Although originally planned for half-term, the work on Pound Corner will now take place on 23rd/24th June. This will be carried out under a three-way traffic light system.

Work on the culvert under the road by Quarrybrook is progressing and should be finished shortly. The agents have, at the Parish Council’s request, filled in the large pot hole at the lights as well.

Councillor Thunder has also flagged a number of issues with the agents at the request of individual residents. These include issues about reinstatement and the repair of a fence.

The good news is that the last tasks are planned to take place on 26th & 27th June.

We are continuing to work closely with the contractors to try to reduce the impact on residents where possible.

A birds eye view of the New Eastern Villages

As part of a project to capture aerial footage of the land within the New Eastern Villages development area, we have given Swindon Borough Council permission to land a drone on the Recreation Ground.

The drone will be shooting footage and landing on the Recreation Ground as needed. The drone controllers will be ensuring that it does not land near residents or interfere with any activities taking place.

Keep an eye open and give it a wave if you see it!
