Wiltshire will be restricting the dumping of rubbish and recyclable materials delivered to its Household Recycling Centres from September, and details of the new free permit system that will apply from September by clicking on more details link below.  It will apply to trailers over 3 metres long and large vans. Information about how to apply for a permit will follow. The background to this is that some other neighbouring counties no longer allow large trailers and vans, often owned by contractors, to dump at HRCs and they are coming in to Wiltshire to do so. These measures by Wiltshire Council are designed to prevent that happening.  New rules for large vans and trailers at Everleigh Household Recycling Centre (and other Wiltshire sites). More details. More details.
The refusal of permission to build 15 houses on Station Yard has been appealed by the developers. More details can be found here. 
More details. More details. Wessex Water has finished relining of the main sewer pipe through the village. The work took a week and does not entailed no disruption to the use of the system. It was a bigger operation than envisaged in respect of amount of equipment used and the effect on traffic. We should now avoid the problem of the manholes lifting and sewage running in the street as has happened in the past. Thanks Wessex Water.   Sewage maintenance work completed.
