Purton Parish Council is consulted on planning applications within, or which significantly affect, the Parish of Purton. Incoming applications are reviewed by the Council and members of the public are welcome to attend.
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.
Please contact the Parish Council Office if you would like to help 01793 771066.
If you see any pot holes or other defects on the highway you can report direct to Wiltshire Council on 0800 23 23 23 (freephone from a landline), 01793 771066 (from a mobile or outside the county of Wiltshire) or at firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
For more information on what you can report on the APP, visit Wiltshire Council website at:
Both forms need to be completed by the witness and sent to Wiltshire Council, the return details are included on the forms.
If you notice that a Street light is not working you can either report it to the Street Lighting Office by telephoning 0300 456 0105 or to the Parish Council Office on 01225 771066.
Problems with Street Lighting can also be reported using the APP which is a cost effective way (2 pence per report by APP compared to £5 per report by telephoning).
