PARKING IN PURTON

DO YOU HAVE A SPARE SPACE ON YOUR DRIVEWAY ?

WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN COMING TO A PRIVATE ARRANGEMENT WITH SOMEONE WHO NEEDS ADDITIONAL PARKING ?
As you are all aware the parking in Purton at the best of times is a strain on most premises. We cannot create car parks or purchase open space for parking, however we can act as a "go between" for those who have spaces for rent and those who might be interested.
If you have a space(s) and would like to offer its use, please contact the offices with your details as below.
If you are in need of a permanent or temporary work place for parking please put your name forward to the council and we will in turn give your details to anyone who has availability.
Working as a community we could help those who have a need to park for work or have no parking of their own and create a safer place to walk, drive and live. #saferparking #purtoncommunity
Disclaimer : Purton Parish Council will act as an intermediary ONLY and take no responsibility for allocation of spaces, hire, pricing, duration or any other associated matters.

January's edition of The Purton Magazine is now available to buy for 50p from The Parish Council Office.
The Office opening hours are 9am until 5pm Monday to Thursday, 9am until 4pm Friday.

GULLEY MANAGEMENT

In order to ease the flow of water during the wetter months, we would like to ask residents who have gullies near their properties to monitor them and advise when they need clearing. 
As you can imagine we have 100s within Purton and to keep them monitored would be impossible, so any help by the community would be welcomed.
If you are unsure if there are any in your area, we can advise.
Without support for the community in monitoring and advising that they need clearing we cannot ensure the free flow  and hopefully reduce flooding and help control water management.
Please contact the Parish Council Office if you would like to help. 01793 771066.

COMMUNITY SPEED WATCH

The CSW or Community Speed Watch began monitoring traffic along The Fox. More and more traffic now use The Fox as a through route from Purton into Swindon, and with this has come a noticeable increase in speed. The role of the CSW is to monitor traffic and report any speeding vehicles to the police who will then take appropriate action. On average there were over 118 vehicles per hour, of these 5.5% were travelling at a speed in excess of 36mph with the fastest travelling over 45mph. Over 13% were travelling between 31mph and 35mph. This means that nearly 1 vehicle in 5 was technically speeding. The role of the CSW is not to be vigilante but by our presence slow traffic down.  If you would like to volunteer please telephone 01793 771066 or email deborah.lawrence@purtonparishcouncil.gov.uk.
