    Residents are rightly aggrieved at David Wilson Homes for refusing to acknowledge the potential issues of the loose stones at the base of their retaining wall - adjacent to the play area at the Beaufort Park (St Ivel) estate.

    Wiltshire Council adopted the play park in 2015 and recently agreed to pay for the park benches to be improved but the wall and the rest of the estate is still the responsibility of the developer.

    Cllr Chris Hurst is keen to support residents throughout Royal Wootton Bassett who have raised road safety and speeding concerns with him.

    Chris is currently supporting a group of active residents on Bath Road who are in the early stages of setting up a community speedwatch group.

    A recent metrocount on Bath Road proved that 85% of traffic was travelling at 35.7mph or just below. This means the road qualifies for community speedwatch.

  • Salisbury Library Petition

    Residents oppose Tory plan to move and slash Library space by 70%

    Wiltshire Council is under pressure to withdraw and amend its planning application for a new building on the site of the former British Heart Foundation.

    The plans have been criticised by the Council's conservation officer. She comments "economic considerations appear to have dictated a 'metropolitan' scaled development which fails to reflect the character of the historic city", as well as about breaching the 40ft Rule in the City. The new building will house a Travelodge; Gym; Restaurant and a new "temporary" Library. The Library space has been slashed to just 5,983 Sq Ft, 70% smaller than the approxcurrent 20,000 Sq Ft, over three floors.
