Community Litter Pick – 13th October

The Community Litter Pick event has been rescheduled for Sunday 13th October.

Please meet at the Village Hall at 11am for safety brief, allocating equipment and organising teams and areas to work.

 

 

Old Vicarage Lane Closure

Thames Water engineers have dug a trench across the road between the former Hotel site entrance and the A420. They are due to finish by Friday 9th.

This means that construction traffic is coming through Pound Corner, in breach of Bellway’s movement conditions.

We  have protested to Bellway and informed the Swindon Borough Council case officer, but I am not sure that  he can enforce the movement conditions on Bellway when they cannot comply.

Information Event – August

The Parish Council has arranged an extra information event that will be held in the village towards the end of August.

This will be attended by Borough officers dealing with highways changes linked to the NEV developments,  including the White Hart and Gable Cross junctions, and will also cover any changes to the local plan.

This event is similar to those being held in other parishes currently and offers an alternative for residents in the village.

Once confirmed the date and location of the event will be published here.
