Welcome to South Wraxall

Mark Caroe - Chairman, South Wraxall Parish Council 

Minutes:

Mark Caroe - Chairman, South Wraxall Parish Council welcomed the Area Board to South Wraxall.

 

Points made included:

 

·         That South Wraxall had a relatively low crime rate, with a population of 400 people.

 

·         Parish issues included the two road junctions on the B3109 that ran through the village. It was felt that both junctions were hazardous, with the Wildcross junction particularly hazardous with overgrown hedges.

 

·         That the road surface was very poor in places. This was noted, and would be brought up at the CATG meeting.

 

·         That the village would like to see village road gates installed, and would like to install “Warning Horses” signage around the parish.

 

The Chairman thanked Mark Caroe for his presentation.

Staverton Flood Risk

Andy Green - Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue 

Minutes:

Andy Green - Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue gave a presentation that highlighted the flood risks to the public at Staverton, and the proposal for flood gates to be installed at four key points to stop motorists from ignoring the current signage and temporary measures to close the local flooded roads.

 

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service believed that a permanent and sustainable solution needed to be found before there was a loss of life.

 

Points made included:

 

·         That flood water in the Holt Cut can be waist deep and swift moving.

 

·         DWFRS defines swift water as movement / flow over 4mph, or walking pace. This flow is enough to sweep your feet from under you.

 

·         Floods also bring large amounts of debris within the flow both floating and submerged.

 

·         Phone Signals in this area are poor

 

 

The proposed solution

 

·         Gate 1 – located beyond the Tollgate Public house on the B3106 and in a position to allow access to local farm land. Span approximately 5.15m.

·         Gate 2 – located at the bottom of the B3106 in close proximity to the traffic lights. Approx span 8m.

·         Gate 3 – located at Forewoods common crossroads, causeway junc with B3107. Located beyond gated farmers access.    Approx span 9.9m.

·         Gate 4 – located at the Cereal partners site before the bridge by the traffic lights. Approx span 9.2m.

 

It was agreed that the Bradford on Avon Area Board would facilitate a meeting of all interested parties, with the hope of getting the proposal agreed and implemented.

The Chairman thanked Andy Green for attending the meeting.

#cleanupWilts supporting the Great British Spring Clean 2018

Peter Dunford - Community Engagement Manager  

Minutes:

The Community Engagement Manager introduced the 2018 Great British Spring Clean, an initiative by Wiltshire Council in conjunction with Keep Britain Tidy to engage communities in cleaning up their environment and to get involved in community litter picking events across the weekend of 2- 4 March 2018 and thereafter.

    

A short film “Clean up Wilts” was shown, highlighting Wiltshire Council’s new initiative to reduce litter dropped in Wiltshire by residents and visitors, reduce fly-tipping in the county and make dropping litter an ethical issue. The campaign looked to change attitudes through education and encourage behavioural change.

 

Promotional materials would be circulated when available and interested communities were encouraged to register their event in good time, to allow waste collection arrangements to be made.
