Housing Needs Survey

The Parish Council and Wiltshire Council are working together to identify the needs of local people in the Parish and would be grateful for your help.

Households in parishes across Wiltshire are being asked to take part in a survey that will give up-to-date information about local housing circumstances and aspirations. This information will be used to help us develop our housing and planning policies to best meet these needs, including whether there is a local need for affordable housing in parishes and, if so, of what size and type.

Waste Management Strategy Consultation and Household Recycling Centre Refurbishment Programme

The council needs to develop a new waste management strategy in order to shape how we collect and manage household waste and recycling in Wiltshire. We are undertaking a public consultation in order to ensure that our strategy is representative of Wiltshire residents’ and stakeholders opinions on the future delivery of household waste management services. The consultation questions have been developed as a result of workshops with council members which took place July 2017.
We would like to encourage as many residents, members and local organisations as possible to complete the consultation. The consultation runs from 4 September 2017 and will be available to complete until 14 November 2017. Residents can complete the  consultation survey on the council’s website.

Hare Coursing is a Crime

The National Farmers Union here in Wiltshire is working with the police to try and reduce the incidence of hare coursing across the county. As you may know, this activity (where dogs are released to chase and kill wild hare for the purpose of betting) is illegal and alongside the environmental crime involves trespass, criminal damage and threatening/ intimidating behaviour to farmers and landowners.

Be Aware of Telephone Scam

We are urging residents to be vigilant following a scam reported by two people in Chippenham and Calne this week.

On Tuesday 29 August, two men aged in their 90s, received calls from a man claiming to be a detective. The ‘detective’ told both men that money had been taken from their bank accounts and to assist police with ongoing enquiries, they must confirm how much money they had in their accounts and who they bank with. They were then asked to go to a jewellers in Chippenham and purchase a Rolex watch costing approximately £25,000.

Credit Card Scam

Beware of calls from someone claiming to be from Scotland Yard, and saying that they have arrested someone who claimed to be your Grandma, and that they had your credit card details. The Police advise that there is a rash of these calls in our area.
