    Wiltshire Liberal Democrats have launched a County wide petition to force a full Council debate and vote on controversial new car parking charges.

    The new charges for Sunday and Bank Holiday parking in Wiltshire Council car parks will be introduced from 19th November in the run up to Christmas.

    The Lib Dems hope to get 5,000 signatures on a petition calling for the charges to be dropped. If successful, that will force a full debate and vote on the charges at the next meeting of Wiltshire Council in the New Year.

    We waited weeks expecting an appeal to the Secretary of State following the recent decision to "refuse" planning permission for the construction of an Advanced Thermal Treatment Plant by gasification in July.

    Instead, Northacre Renewable Energy, claiming to have learnt lessons, have responded by submitting a strikingly similar plan to their former unsuccessful plan arrogantly telling Wiltshire Council that it has one last chance to get this right or they will appeal, claiming cost.

    Our good friend and colleague Cllr David Jenkins had an accident in September severely breaking his right arm and cracking the other, putting David temporarily out of action.

    David is undergoing an intensive series of therapies to aid his recovery including the assistance of the fracture clinic at RUH Bath to rebuild the strength and use in his arms.

    Cllr Gordon King is asking residents to join him to "demand better for Westbury".

    For too long Conservative Wiltshire Council has looked the other way, starving our town of services and resources. Other communities have learnt they get more attention when they let councils know what they want and constructively criticise what they do not like, they "demand better". Westbury-help us demand better!
