    The Liberal Democrat group on Wiltshire Council have announced their new shadow Cabinet spokespeople, following their group AGM on Saturday 8thJune 2019.

    The meeting also saw the re-election of Ian Thorn as the leader of the opposition on Wiltshire Council.

    Cllr Thorn commenting on the appointment of the new spokespeople said, "With less than two years to go until the next Wiltshire Council election, it is now very important to challenge the Conservative administration at every opportunity and these appointments will play a crucial part in doing so."

    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!
