Community Governance Review – Steeple Ashton
Scheme number 104
The council has recently completed a number of Community Governance Reviews (CGR) at the request of parish and town councils across the county. This is essentially a review of parish boundaries, and in some cases also the number of seats on a parish council. Unitary council divisional areas and seats are not covered by this review.
At its meeting on 12 July 2016, the council agreed a number of proposals for the Trowbridge area and surrounding parishes, following consultation. An additional scheme was raised at that meeting relating to the Steeple Ashton area, which adjoins Trowbridge. The council agreed to defer a decision on this scheme to allow public consultation to take place.
We would like to hear your views.
In carrying out the review, the council must ensure that community governance within the area under review will:
- Reflect the identities and interests of the community in that area.
- Be effective and convenient.
Consequently, a CGR must take into account a number of factors, including the impact of community governance arrangements on community cohesion, and the size, population and boundaries of a local community or parish.
The council will meet to consider the report on 17 October 2016 and make decisions on the proposals before them.
