Wiltshire Council are running a consultation on Green Infrastructure and Open Space. As part of this consultation they are asking all households to complete a short survey. The survey can be found by clicking on this link. Once completed, please email it to SpatialPlanningPolicy@wiltshire.gov.uk There will also shortly be some hard copies available in the library for anyone to return via the post if they prefer. All surveys need to be returned by 31 March 2020.
Please note, this survey is different to the Local Green Spaces consultation recently carried out by the Parish Council as part of the Neighbourhood Plan process.

Ground water levels are, unsurprisingly, rising again at the Water Acre borehole, which inevitably will result in more flooding in Aldbourne. Advise on how to prepare for, and protect your property from, flooding can be found on the Wiltshire Council website, or the Flooding Help Information link below. Thames Water continue to pump out the sewers, but there is likely to be some surcharging again. Please take sensible hygiene precautions if you have to traverse through flood water contaminated by sewage.

Thames Water are still working to reduce the surcharging in the village centre, and will continue to clean the areas affected whilst it is still occurring. There are plans to over-pump at Preston to further decrease water levels in the village.
24 December 2019
We are aware of the surcharging from manholes in the vicinity of The Square. Thames Water have been advised and have arranged for a tanker to be set up in the village to keep the water levels down in the affected drains. Please take sensible precautions in relation to footwear and hygiene if you have to traverse through any water that is/has been affected by surcharging.
