It was stated that the A4, from the A3102 roundabout would be closed for a fortnight from 11 September for resurfacing. In response to queries about alternative proposals for scheduling the works, the Chairman confirmed that had had taken on the views of local residents, as well as contacting Wiltshire Council and the contractor. The option of carrying out works at night was not considered appropriate due to objections from neighbouring properties. It was not feasible to conduct the work one lane at a time due to the scale of the works.  The Vice-Chairman noted that gates would be in place to allow access for residents living on the road to be able to access their property.


The Area Board were informed that the Ask the Leader session advertised on the agenda front sheet was still to be confirmed and that further updates were available on Wiltshire Council’s website.
