West Wiltshire District Council is launching a dog microchipping campaign to try and reduce the number of strays collected in the area.

How many trees does WWDC use every year?

In the age of the paperless (sic) office, it is amazing just how much paper etc. is used at Bradley Road.

Two public inquiries are due to start soon.

Sunday October 30, 2005
It seems as if developers cannot accept that the WWDC planning committee actually know what they are doing. Rather than work with the council, they prefer to go to the Planning Inspectorate and invoke the appeal procedure.

Various bodies deal with council related complaints.

Three bodies deal with the various types of complaints about either the local council, or local councillors.

More appeals lodged by Persimmon.

As certainly as night follows day, Persimmon has lodged two further appeals.

A press release has been issued by WWDC.

Friday October 14, 2005
Extending recycling was a key policy of the previous administration as it is now, and rightly so, for the Lib Dems.

It must be one of the few subjects that just about every councillor agrees with, and I find it dis-appointing that certain factions within the Lib Dems are now claiming that they 'got things moving again'.

I realise that cheap 'point scoring' is part and parcel of how the party system works; but to make something as fundamentally important as re-cycling part of the 'game' of local politics really defies belief.

There is still time to register for the new electoral roll.

Tuesday October 11, 2005
Three quarters of all households in West Wiltshire have already confirmed their electoral registration details with the District Council.

Each service has its own procedure.

Sunday October 09, 2005
Depending on which service has let you down, there is a separate contact point.

Two Paxcroft Mead applications were decided last night.

Friday October 07, 2005
Two Paxcroft Mead items were on the agenda last night, including the proposed pub at the local centre.

Figures are now available from the speed camera partnership.

Thursday October 06, 2005
Figures are now available from the 'golden river' (the pair of rubber tubes) that was placed across Devizes Road earlier this year.

The recent decision regarding Staverton Triangle could be overturned.

Sunday October 02, 2005
On 22 September the WWDC planning committee voted to grant permission for Persimmon to build on the Staverton Triangle site (application 04/02303).

There are two Paxcroft Mead items on the agenda.

Friday September 30, 2005
The Paxcroft Mead pub comes back to the planning committee on Thursday for the THIRD time!!

Wiltshire Fire Brigade is hosting this event in Trowbridge.

A public meeting is to be held at Hilperton Village Hall.

The Community Counsultative Group has selected Hilperton for their next meeting.

All theStaverton items were discussed last Thursday.

Sunday September 25, 2005
On 23 September, I posted the result of the planning committee meeting, but the story seems to have 'fallen off' the site. Accordingly, I have posted ba shortened version below.

Three Staverton items will be discussed this evening.

Thursday September 22, 2005
Two highly controversial applications within Staverton will be discussed tonight.

I have asked for them to be brought to the committee "In the interest of wider public debate", so it will be interesting to hear the justification for these schemes from the WWDC officers.

The celebrations at Paxcroft Mead will commence at 12 noon.

Tuesday September 20, 2005
The official opening will be performed by The Lord Lieutenant of Wiltshire, Mr John Bush, commencing at 12 noon.

A new review could spell the end for smaller forces.

Saturday September 17, 2005
The latest review of policing could be the death knell for our local police force, as smaller forces are likely to be merged in the interest of greater efficiency.

It would seem that the Wiltshire Constabulary will be joined with Dorset and possibly Hampshire, as well.
