Housing Needs Survey

The Parish Council and Wiltshire Council are working together to identify the needs of local people in the Parish and would be grateful for your help.

Households in parishes across Wiltshire are being asked to take part in a survey that will give up-to-date information about local housing circumstances and aspirations. This information will be used to help us develop our housing and planning policies to best meet these needs, including whether there is a local need for affordable housing in parishes and, if so, of what size and type.

Waste Management Strategy Consultation and Household Recycling Centre Refurbishment Programme

The council needs to develop a new waste management strategy in order to shape how we collect and manage household waste and recycling in Wiltshire. We are undertaking a public consultation in order to ensure that our strategy is representative of Wiltshire residents’ and stakeholders opinions on the future delivery of household waste management services. The consultation questions have been developed as a result of workshops with council members which took place July 2017.
We would like to encourage as many residents, members and local organisations as possible to complete the consultation. The consultation runs from 4 September 2017 and will be available to complete until 14 November 2017. Residents can complete the  consultation survey on the council’s website.

Hare Coursing is a Crime

The National Farmers Union here in Wiltshire is working with the police to try and reduce the incidence of hare coursing across the county. As you may know, this activity (where dogs are released to chase and kill wild hare for the purpose of betting) is illegal and alongside the environmental crime involves trespass, criminal damage and threatening/ intimidating behaviour to farmers and landowners.

Wiltshire Councils Development Planning Document (DPD).

Wiltshire Councils Development Planning Document (DPD).   This additional demand by the new DPD  has also been discussed as the proposals directly affect  our neighbourhood -  where and how many additional houses might be built in the parish.  The new DPD has only recently been published and could have a major impact on our village if left unopposed.  To ensure that your views are represented, Wiltshire Council are holding a series of meetings July to September at which you can have your say .    The Trowbridge exhibition takes place between 12pm and 7pm in the County Hall Atrium on 26 July 2017.

Neighbourhood Plan - Update

Our NP is progressing well and will be presented to Wiltshire Council shortly for its first review.  All your responses from our consultation meetings have been considered and form part of the plan with additional work from a Landscaping Consultant.  This will ensure that the plan has every aspect of the North Bradley environment and surrounding area covered.

We will update the Parish Council web site once the Neighbourhood Plan has been presented to Wiltshire Council.
