Council’s current financial situation.
Accounts Accounts We have heard in that in the next financial year 2016/17 the A338 will be re-surfaced between the Tipple Inn roundabout to the roundabout at Collingbourne Kingston. When we say resurfaced we mean a proper job and not just a patch up. More details of the re-surfacing of the A338 through the Collingbournes. The system has been changed and improved in the following ways:   	The old Clarence number has been replaced by 0300 456 0105.This feeds direct into the Customer Care Centre     and avoids problems that used to arise   for mobile phone callers. 	Reports may now be made online to          	It is now possible to track progress in real time on resolving road maintenance issues that have been reported online. 	Issues that can be reported include council signs, car parks, fly-tipping, potholes, playgrounds, street lighting, roads and drains and manholes, traffic lights, dead animals on a public road, trees and many others.   There is now a new procedure for Reporting  Highways Issues.            also an app is available for smart phone and pad users who can download it from the online reporting website.   www.wiltshire.gov.uk/mywilts Road Notices and Updates None to report More details. More details. More details. More details. 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.

The refusal of permission to build a house on land at, Cadley Road, Collingbourne Ducis, SN8  3ED. The appeal has been refused.
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.
