Blunsdon St Andrew Parish Council to take over 10 play areas in St Andrews Ridge, Abbey Meads, Groundwell West and Redhouse. Parish Council Elections coming soon.
Swindon, Wiltshire, - 30th March 2015.
Terms have been agreed for Blunsdon St Andrew Parish Council to take over the care and maintenance of 10 play areas from Swindon Borough Council from 1st April. The Parish Council has a planned roll out of investment in these play areas over the next 12 months. ‘We will be replacing some old and broken equipment and making good some of the damaged and worn surfaces, as well as giving them a good clean!’ said Ian Jankinson, Chairman. ‘There has been a lack of investment by the Borough recently, so we have made plans to put in place a regime of checking and litter-picking, as well as bringing the play areas back up to a good standard. There has been some vandalism on some sites and this needs addressing and putting right. We have had some good feedback already from residents about how to improve things so if you have any ideas please contact the Parish Council at contact@blunsdonparishcouncil.co.uk .’
This year’s Parish Precept has been agreed and despite the Council having to budget for the care and maintenance of these play areas, and a previous over-calculation of occupied properties by the Borough Council, the increase is just 30p per Band D household per year, at £18.73. That’s an increase of less than 2%. Blunsdon St Andrew is still one of the lowest cost Parishes in the Borough.
Blunsdon St Andrew Parish Council is due to have an election at the same time as the General Election. The Council comprises 13 Parish Councillors representing the ‘Abbey Meads’ Ward (about half of Abbey Meads, Ashbrake, St Andrews Ridge, Groundwell West, and Redhouse) 3 for the Blunsdon Ward and 1 for the Kingsdown Ward. If you want to support your local Community and join the Parish Council please contact Rachel Smith contact@blunsdonparishcouncil.co.uk or ring her on 705617 before the 7th April. Completed nomination papers must be received by the Borough Council before 4pm on 9th April.
