    Tuesday's Council meeting saw the Lib Dems propose a motion to start a feasibility study into using waste plastic to repair our county's roads. This both environmental and economically beneficial motion has been passed to the overview and scrutiny committee to assess its use in Wiltshire.

    Cllr Brian Mathew proposing his motion argued that while, "parts of our planet are starting to drown under a sea of waste plastic, and with UK waste plastic no longer going to China for recycling, we have to find another way and find a use for this material here at home. What is less known is that it is already underway in the UK. And if this was extended to all local Authority areas, a productive use for as much as 60,000 tonnes of waste plastic could be found each year in UK roads."

    At the end of an at times fractious day discussing the budget, the full council meeting ended with cross party agreement to support Dr Brian Mathew's motion to assess the feasibility of scaling up the 'Shared Lives' programme in Wiltshire. This will now go to the next cabinet meeting to establish how this can go forward. There is a potential for a real 'win-win' here for both adult social care in Wiltshire and serious savings for the Council's budget.

    Following news of Tesco's challenging financial situation it has been revealed that they have stopped the proposed development in Royal Wotton Bassett but still intend to develop a new store in Calne, although no dates have yet been given indicating when this will happen.

    Wiltshire's Liberal Democrats have welcomed the news that local residents views have been considered and that Royal Wootton Bassett's historic town centre will now be protected but are calling for the land to be offered to another group that could contribute to the Towns infrastructure and not let it be held in a Tesco Land Bank.
