  • RWB Play Area Wall

    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.

    At the time of writing, work is underway to resurface Station Road. The road has been left in a dreadful state following years of neglect. It is now time to focus on getting our other roads up to standard.

    New Road, for example, desperately needs attention. Disappointingly, the Council have declared that there is no money available for improving footways in this financial year. Chris Hurst believes that many of our pavements are dangerous and this is not being addressed by Wiltshire Council.

    The Salvavtion Army application to build social housing units at the old Council depot site off Marlborough Road is still yet to be determined.

    Following representations by Cllr Chris Hurst, the planning officer has gone back to the applicant to seek improvements. Chris is concerned that the current application is trying to maximise the profit out of the site rather than take account of what is the best use of the space.

    Your local Lib Dem team have been working hard over the summer to secure improvements at the Beaufort Park 'St Ivel' Estate.

    The play area, adopted by Wiltshire Council in 2013, is now in a poor state of repair. After interventions by Cllrs David Bowler and Chris Hurst, Wiltshire Council have now secured S106 funding to make the necessary improvements.

    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.

    Cllr Chris Hurst has been leading the campaign to reduce the 60mph speed limit along Marlborough Road.

    Recent accidents along the road have demonstrated the need to reduce the speed of vehicles.

    After action from Chris, the Council's Highways department are recommending reducing the speed limit to 40mph.
