Starting in January 2019 the signage throughout the village will be enhanced and de-cluttered together with some amendments to road markings, which we hope will reduce speeds through the village.
Please see the attached plans for full details.
Our Plan has been submitted to Wiltshire Council to begin the next part of the process which is requesting official feedback on the plan.
Please find below both the guidelines for this from Wiltshire Council together with a feedback form. Note that these are not being collected within Oaksey but need to go direct to Wiltshire Council as detailed.
We felt that you should know that Wiltshire Council have sent us the attached map for our Village. This shows 7 sites which have been registered by their owners to ‘make Wiltshire Council aware that the land proposed might be suitable’ for future residential development. Their inclusion in the long term strategic plan does not, we are told, give this land any preference at all in the planning process.
The Parish Council has forwarded its outright and total opposition to these sites. They are all outside our residential boundary and are not required to satisfy future housing needs in Oaksey.’
