Community Governance Review - Your Views Count

Wiltshire Council have undertaken a Community Governance Review. In that review they have recommended that the following areas of North Bradley be transferred to Trowbridge Town  Council. Essentially the new developments on Elm Grove and the rear of Woodmarsh could potentially move over to Trowbridge Town Council.  This would mean that Trowbridge Town Council would receive any Community Infrastructure Levy for new developments, and those residents affected would pay the Council Tax precept for Trowbridge, which is considerably higher than for North Bradley
 We have until July to get the public to contest this decision via the Wiltshire Council Governance Review pages. . We are not allowed in this response to challenge the loss of income that this will mean. Please feel free to fill in the online consultation, links at the end,
Lets get the whole village behind us.
 
The consultation will run  to at least 10 July 2020.
 

Pedestrian Crossing Southwick Road

Following numerous concerns raised about the location of the existing crossing, in particular relating to the width of the payment, the Parish Council are actively working with Wiltshire Council on the feasibility of moving the crossing to a more suitable location. The preferred location is closer to the junction of Ash Drive with Southwick Road. The estimated cost of moving the crossing is in the region of £65,000.

Be Cautious of Cold Callers

WiltsCommMessaging logo high thumbScams over the phone are nothing new, but, in the current climate, they are being adapted. Criminals are exploiting the need to keep ourselves safe and take protective measures during the COVID19 pandemic so are reinventing their scams to use Coronavirus as a hook.

Any unsolicited phones calls should be treated with extreme caution, and if they’re asking for payment details it’s highly likely to be a scam.
