    Corsham has had a market town charter since 1285 but the few stalls that occupy a corner of the Newlands Road Car Park every Tuesday hardly constitute a proper market. Wiltshire's stretched council services make it unlikely that they can change things.

    Local Liberal Democrat and Town Councillor, Neville Farmer believes successful markets boost town centres and community spirit. He is working with other Councillors to explore starting a new market and he's interested to hear what you want.

    The long-stay car park is underused, yet residents of the flats and terraced houses in the High Street and surrounding area, are being charged £200 per year, rising to £360, to use this car park. They can't afford it! So they park on the neighbouring streets adding to congestion and frustration.

    There is one simple solution: give High St residents affordable permits to park in the empty car parks thereby allowing residents in neighbouring streets to have more opportunity to park outside their own houses!

    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.
