  1. Five members of the public attended the meeting to express concerns about the Parish Council’s proposal to sell Ragged Robin Copse. The Chairman assured those present that the land at Ragged Robin Copse will not be offered for sale for development, he went on to say that the Parish Council has been approached by a Conservation Group with a view to use the copse as a conservation area. Prior to any instruction for sale, legal advice will be undertaken, and consultation will be taken with the Parish.
  2. WPC Juliet Cox attended the meeting to report information on local crime and anti-social behaviour. The Parish Council raised concerns about safety issues on Salisbury Road, leading to the new roundabout at the foot of Telegraph Hill. Vehicles parked on the roadside make entry and exit to the roundabout dangerous. There are no double yellow lines to prevent parking and, in some cases, vehicles can be parked within 10 meters of the junction forcing vehicles approaching the roundabout to travel in the middle of a busy road.  WPC Cox agreed to escalate the Parish Council’s concerns.
  3. Wiltshire Councillor John Smale reported the following: -
  1. The next Amesbury Area Board will take place at Sharp Hall, 234 Weston Road, Larkhill, on 16th January 2020, starting at 7.00pm.
  1. Lt Col Nick Turner attended the meeting and discussion took place on the new roundabout and outstanding safety issues which are ongoing.
