Wiltshire Council news from Ernie Clark.

Your Independent councillor for Hilperton.

As I mentioned last month, the political group leaders at County Hall have regular briefings on the Covid situation.  Wiltshire, as I write, has not been badly hit but things don’t seem to look any better in the short term. Let’s hope that we don’t find ourselves in tier 2.

The inspector for the Non-Statutory Public Inquiry into village green status for ‘Church Field’ has still not reported his conclusion. There were several matters which he had to look carefully at and so one must hope that a reply is received relatively quickly.

Also, still in the ‘no further news’ category, is the application for funding for an improved cycle link between Trowbridge and Melksham via Hilperton and Semington using Devizes Road and the two public by-ways.

The agent for the planned new development at Church Farm attended the October meeting of the parish council (which, again, was held ‘in person’ rather than via Zoom or similar). The plan is for 15 new properties, but the number of affordable homes will be less than the usually required 30% due to a variety of reasons.

There are two web sites which people might find useful;

Hopefully, December will see better news!
