MARCH 2020     Updated 20th March 2020

NEW APPLICATIONS 

20/01208/FUL – Barn South West of the Fox Purton SN5 4EB
Conversion of agricultural building to a dwelling.

At the full Council meeting held on 9th March 2020, Purton Parish Council raised Objections to the conversion of agricultural building to a dwelling:
1. Size of plot being taken from an agricultural field to form the curtilage of the residential proposal. 
2. Is the building suitable, without major changes, to be converted into a habitable home?
3. Currently only three walls and an open frontage.  Corrugated roof and low head height. 
4. Is the building still required for agriculture.
5. Close to a public footpath which will impact the experience of walking into the countryside, delaying that experience until past a new potential large garden.
6. Where is the public right of way in relation to the access road and will this be impacted
7. Need reassurance that no additional water will be discharged towards The Fox as there have been surface water issues on the road in the past.
8. What will the boundary features be around the new building?  Will they complement the rural setting?
9. Impact of vehicles parked on site rather than being garaged or screened and being out of sight bearing in mind this is very much a rural area.

REFUSED APPLICATION
 

GULLY 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 their 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.

REPORTING OF HIGHWAY ISSUES 

If you see any pot holes or other defects on the highway you can report direct to Wiltshire Council on 0800 23 23 23 (freephone from a landline) 01225 777234 (from a mobile or outside the county of Wiltshire) clarence@wiltshire.gov.uk, alternatively you can report to the Parish Council Office on 771066.  Wiltshire Council has now got an APP for the iphone and android devices that you can download, so you can report issues at the time you see them and this in turn picks up your GPS location of the issue, so no need to explain where the issue is.  For more information on what you can report on the APP, visit Wiltshire Council website at www.wiltshire.gov.uk/parkingtransportandstreets/roadshighwaysstreetcare/mywiltshirelogin.htm
