Issue Summary

CATG parking on road at C50


Latest Update

05/06/2017 14:29:08 Thank you for raising your issue with the Area Board. The Council has set up a way for local people to decide local highway improvement priorities. A local community area transport group (CATG) of local people and elected councillors comes together to consider issues and proposals and to recommend those schemes that can be taken forward in any year. Before the CATG can consider a proposal, it must first consult the local parish or town council. Only if the parish supports the issue will it be considered further. If your issue is supported by the parish council, it will be submitted to the CATG for consideration. The CATG will then decide whether it should go forward onto the list of priority schemes. Resources are very limited, so it is important that schemes are prioritised in this way. Obviously, not all schemes can be taken forward and some proposals may have to wait a while before they become a priority for funding. The CATG makes recommendations to the Area Board who will decide which schemes will be funded and taken forward. We will keep you informed of progress as we go through the steps outlined

CATG Action / Recommendation


Parking of vehicles on the C50 at Spaniels Bridge Coate. This problem is the result of the recent sale by Aster of land long used as a car park by the residents of Spaniels Bridge. Displaced vehicles now have no alternative but to park on-road. Despite parish council representations Wiltshire Council have given permission for change of use for the land to domestic curtilage. Roadside parking at this point is extremely hazardous and is impacting on the visibility for vehicles using the C50 and for neighbouring properties emerging from off-road parking.
