The Parish Council sometimes undertakes one-off or other special projects in the interest of the Village. These may be performed by volunteers and managed by the Parish Council, or funded or part funded by the Parish Council or through grants of various types.

If you have any particular suggestions or recommendations for action by the Parish Council which fall outside our statutory obligations, do please tell us and we can consider how we may action them – either through referral to the appropriate body, or by setting up a special project where there is a need.

Please contact The Clerk with any suggestions for special projects which you believe require attention and/or are not being adequately performed requiring improvement.

Current Special Projects are:

The Parish Council recognises that communications via print and noticeboards are no longer fit for purpose and have embarked upon an upgrade to the historic approach. This includes an upgraded Website with more current and digestible information, and will include more email and public information distribution in due course. Meanwhile we would be delighted if you “Sign Up for Parish News”.

The Parish Council recognises the difference in road and access maintenance of the village in general and Aster Properties. Meetings have been held and requests for improvement in maintenance of Aster owned roads and access areas and we await improvements. This continues to be an area of concern and attention meanwhile.

The Parish Council has noted many comments from the public about the increasing low-level crime and severe deterioration of police coverage and visibility. We continue to encouraging Wiltshire Police to improve their coverage of the village. Additionally the Parish Council has deployed further CCTV cameras and may consider further expansion of CCTV coverage in key areas.
