Welcome to our newsletter giving news from Box Parish Council for the month of . . .
Highway Issues Cllr Hill presented his report on the issues raised at the Corsham Area Transport Group.
· Speed on Lower Kingsdown Road: Proposal from Wiltshire Council to erect signs at either end of the Lower Kingsdown Road at a cost of £1000, with a 25% contribution of £250 from the Parish Council was accepted at Full Council.
· Metrocount A365: Clerk to ask for a metro-count to be carried out on the A365 approaching Box just after the entrance to The Ley
· Road markings at top of A4 Box Hill; Letter from Wiltshire Council stated that the current markings are acceptable.
Bees in Bowling Green The bowling club informed us that there are mining bees nesting in the sides of the Bowling Green. The Clerk had taken advice from the Bowling Green Contractor; Wiltshire Council Pest Control Officer and the local Bee Keeping Society, none of which could offer any help with the situation. Cllr Whitford (a bee keeper of long standing) has agreed to look at this and report back to the Council.
Replacement Bridge in the Lovar Garden
We are aware that residents would like to have the bridge replaced. The
parish council are looking into the cost and design of a new bridge. Once
the cost is received it will be discussed at Full Council in the hope that
monies can be sought when we set the precept for the new financial year.
Neighbourhood Plan Public meetingIt
has been agreed that we will hold a public meeting on Monday 26th
November 2018 at the Pavilion. 7.30 p.m. The meeting is to inform residents
of the process of producing a Neighbourhood Plan.
We had two applicants for the vacancy for Box Ward and following a secret
ballot Mr Nick Botterill was elected. We look forward to welcoming him to
our meeting next month.
