Welcome to Aldbourne Parish Council website

Aldbourne Parish Council meets on the first Wednesday of each month (excluding August; December or January) at 7:30pm in the Memorial Hall, Aldbourne.  

All parishioners are most welcome to attend these meetings.

14/05/18 - Important message from Thames Water about blockages caused by wet wipes, kitchen roll and paper towels at Whittonditch, which in turn can cause flooding. Please do not flush any of these items down the toilet.  TW Letter

11/05/18 - There is currently a vacancy for ONE councillor on the Parish Council. Parish Councils depend on local people taking an interest in what happens in their community, whatever their background, and local people standing as councillors can bring a wealth of knowledge and community understanding into their local council. Please contact the clerk or any of the existing councillors if you are interested in the role.
 
03/05/18 - Update re works on Castle Street - There is a suspected fault in the sewer pipe along Castle Street that is allowing water ingress during periods when the water table is high, which results in surcharging of sewage into the road.  In order to find this fault Thames Water need to dig several inspection holes in the road.  This will result in the closure of Castle Street to all vehicles.  Thames Water had attempted to start the work this week, but had not followed the correct procedures re the road closure, and hence they were asked by Wiltshire Council to stop working.  They are applying to Wiltshire Council for permission to close the road, but this could take up to three months to obtain.  By this time the water table will have dropped, and it will be more difficult to see where any water ingress is coming from.  This means the work could be further delayed until the autumn/winter.  Thames Water have assured the Council that they will be giving plenty of notice of the works, sending letters to all nearby residents, and ensuring proper diversion signs are in place during the works.  As soon as the Parish Council has been provided with a date for the works they will add an update here.
