VE Day – Party Pack!
Wiltshire Council has created a special ‘VE Day at home pack’ to help residents of all ages celebrate and mark the 75th anniversary of this historic moment in time.
With social distancing measures still in place, the pack contains simple advice and suggestions to commemorate VE Day on Friday 8 May, which this year is a bank holiday. The pack can be downloaded from the Wiltshire Council website at http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/public-health-coronavirus.
The Parish Council will play a role in providing clear and updated information to raise awareness of prevention measures like handwashing and will co-ordinate with community groups to provide help and support to our more vulnerable residents.
The coronavirus situation is fast-moving and there is an increasing amount of misinformation online – up to date information and the latest advice is available from Public Health England.
The Parish Council will continue to operate in accordance with current legislation and government guidance and we need to ensure that we mitigate any risks to the Council – we do however anticipate some disruption to future meetings – details will be posted on the website and notice boards.
Wiltshire Council have created a COVID-19 Community Pack to support communities during the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
The pack contains a list of key contacts, resources and information in one place.
Wiltshire Council are undertaking a collaborative piece of work that we are seeking assistance with. Approximately 4 years ago, Wiltshire Council collected data related to open space provision in your area and your input was invaluable. However, it is really important that the records the Council has are brought up to date so that they can accurately inform two significant emerging strategies.
The data collected will be used to understand the current provision of existing open space within the county and will form part of the evidence base necessary to underpin a new Green infrastructure Strategy and an Open Space Strategy.
You can have your say by returning the filled out survey via email to SpatialPlanning.Policy@wiltshire.gov.uk before 31st of March 2020, or by sending a hard copy to your Parish Clerk before Friday 27th March 2020.
If you wish to read around the subject Natural England’s Green Infrastructure’s Guidance page has a downloadable PDF which describes Green Infrastructure. If you wish to see further information regarding Wiltshire Council’s current policies in the Wiltshire Core Strategy please go to our Planning Policy Core Strategy webpage.
We hope you understand the important role that open space and green infrastructure plays in the community and the benefits thereof of completing and returning the survey.
If you have any questions, please contact your Parish Clerk or by using the contact details below.
