Town and parish council survey gets underway

You are being asked for your say on proposals into possible changes to electoral arrangements of Wiltshire's towns and parishes.

We are running a public survey until 26 February 2019 on proposals we have received as part of our ongoing Community Governance Review changes. The review is to ensure that town and parish councils continue to be reflective of the identity and interest of local communities, and that they are as efficient and effective as can be in their governance.

A series of public meeting dates have also been confirmed for you to find out more about the proposals. Each meeting will focus on the proposed schemes for that area:

  • Trowbridge 20 January Council Chamber, County Hall, Trowbridge 6pm-7:30pm
  • Melksham Without 22 January Bowerhill Village Hall , Melksham Without 6pm 7:30pm
  • Calne Without 5 February The Lansdown Hall, Derry Hill, Calne Without 5:30pm 7pm
  • Melksham 14 February Assembly Hall, Melksham, 6pm 7:30pm

Cllr Richard Clewer, Chairman of the Electoral Review Committee of Wiltshire Council, said "The committee has received many proposed changes to the parishes included in this review. Before draft recommendations are formulated we would like to know what residents and other members of the public feel about the proposed changes, and encourage as many people as possible to respond to this survey and attend the public meetings."

Before draft recommendations are formulated we would like to know what residents and other members of the public feel about the proposed changes, and encourage as many people as possible to respond to this survey and attend the public meetings. 

The survey and further information about the proposals, including which areas are being surveyed, can be found on our  Community Governance Review pages.
