Temporary Closure of Westbury Road

Wiltshire Council has made an Order to close temporarily to all traffic: Westbury Road (Part), North Bradley; from its junction with Southwick Road to its junction with A363 White Horse Business Park.
To enable: Wiltshire Council to carry out the resurfacing of carriageway, footway and associated maintenance works.

This Order will come into operation on 21 July 2020 and the closure will be required between the hours of 09:00 and 16:00 until 31 July 2020.

Access will be maintained for residents and businesses where possible, although delays are likely due to the nature of the works.

IMPORTANT Action Required

There is a threat to the existence of your village as you know it. Wiltshire Council is conducting a boundary review and proposes to give large chunks of the village to Trowbridge Town Council.

They have asked for the fields between Woodmarsh and the town and for Drynham dwellings to transfer to Trowbridge. You must campaign to stop this
happening or risk losing the integrity of the village as you know it.

See notice as to how you can take action.
