Traffic Calming Measures starting to be introduced into Hilcott today! 29th November 2021

North Newnton Parish Council are very pleased to note that the implementation of traffic calming measures are starting today! (29th November 2021) along Hilcott High Street.

The first stage is a series of “Roundalls” White lines emphasising Slow and 40MPH speed limits for the Village.

The Parish Council are hoping that this is the start of such measures and are also working with Wiltshire Highways to provide from Parish Funds “White Gates” at the entrances of the Village to emphasis  you are entering a Village and reduce speed accordingly.






Important Please have your say about Parish Boundary Changes

Please find attached a copy of Briefing Note no. 21-25 

This briefing note relates to a survey being undertaken for a community governance review involving  Beechingstoke (who currently have no Parish Council or Parish Representation ) and therefore are consulting with surrounding Parishes including our Parish of North Newnton,

The survey, along with other information, will enable the  Electoral Review Committee to consider if any changes should be made to parish governance arrangements in these areas.

Please see the survey and give your views as to whether you want our North Newnton boundary to change – one suggestion is to add the properties along Broad Street (those currently not in our Parish located from the Notice Board to the Railway Bridge) into our Parish.
