Gully Management

In order to ease the flow of water during the wetter months, we would like to ask residents who have gullies near their properties to monitor them and advise when they need clearing.

As you can imagine we have 100s within Purton and to keep them monitored would be impossible, so any help by the community would be welcomed.

If you are unsure if there are any in your area, we can advise. Without support for the community in monitoring and advising that they need clearing we cannot ensure the free flow and hopefully reduce flooding and help control water management.

Reporting of Highway Issues

If you see any pot holes or other defects on the highway you can report direct to Wiltshire Council on 03004560100 or Report on the Wiltshire Council App alternatively you can report to the Parish Council Office on 01793 771066.

Wiltshire Council has an APP for iPhones and android devices that you can download, so you can report issues at the time you see them and this in turn picks up your GPS location of the issue, so no need to explain where the issue is.
