    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.
