Chairman's Announcements

To receive the following announcements through the Chairman (written briefing notes are available in the full agenda pack, or online):


·         Winter Weather preparations

Wiltshire Council will once again be running the Parish Emergency Assistance Scheme (PEAS) which gives local Town and Parish Councils the opportunity to get hold of vital kit which can be used during adverse weather events. The application form is now available from weather.team@wiltshire.gov.uk. We kindly ask that any requests for equipment are made by the end of August 2019.


The weather team can help you develop plans and also help with the provision of certain items to help make parishes more resilient when extreme weather arrives.


·         Healthier communities

A new project by Wiltshire Council to help residents on a low income improve their health by becoming more active was launched in May.


Wiltshire Council’s Healthier Communities project will target ten areas across Calne, Chippenham, Salisbury, Trowbridge and Melksham and will provide estate-based sport and physical activity opportunities to residents living in identified locations. Residents from each community will be invited to take part and shape future provision.


·         Highways improvements and traffic survey requests

Wiltshire Council is changing the way highway improvements and traffic surveys are requested by members of the public and through Town and Parish Councils. The current process requires updating to improve the customer experience and to reduce the steps involved. The proposed new system will foster a closer working relationship with town and parish councils, whilst providing a better and more informed experience for members of the public.


Details and links can be found in the attached agenda report.


·         Global Warming and Climate Change Emergency Task Group

Cllr Graham Wright to update the meeting on the above task group.
