AN ERROR WAS MADE DURING THE PUBLICATION OF THE FEBRUARY EDITION OF THE PARISH MAGAZINE. THE CORRECT DETAILS ARE BELOW:
PRECEPT FOR 2019/20
At the January meeting it was unanimously agreed that the Precept would need to be increased by 9.49% for 2019/20 to maintain the level of service that has been achieved in this current financial year. Since the transfer of services from Swindon Borough our aim has been to carry out works and maintenance where it is most needed. This equates to approximately £59 for a band D property. The Parish Council will continue to make every effort to ensure that the precept is no higher than is necessary and remains prudent and self-sustaining.
The Parish Council fully endorses and supports the aims and objectives of South Swindon Protection Group, whose flyers have been distributed to residents, in fighting the Planning application to build a Science Park on the land at Inlands Farm, Wanborough. We will be submitting our own objections to the proposal and encourage all residents to make their views known to the planning authority.
NEW PLAY EQUIPMENT
At the time of writing, the new play equipment was due to be installed on Liddington Playing Field soon after 8thJanuary, weather permitting. We hope the children enjoy using the new pieces. As previously mentioned, the basket swing can cater for more than one person at a time, so siblings or parent and child can be on the swing together. It is also suitable for children with disabilities. The Dart Activity Centre should provide a variety of activities. We hope the children enjoy using the new equipment, it would be good to hear what they think.
The next meeting of Liddington Parish Council will be held onWednesday 6thFebruary 2019starting at 7pm in the Village Hall, not as reported in the Lyden Magazine.
Val Curtis, Clerk to Liddington Parish Council
