Public Meeting Wednesday 14th September - North Swindon Parish Boundary Changes
Date posted: 12th September 2016
People living in North Swindon are being asked to attend a public meeting next week to discuss the proposed split of Blunsdon St Andrew Parish Council into two separate parished areas.
Under Swindon Council’s proposals to parish the entire borough, a new St Andrew’s Ridge Parish Council could be formed that would see the existing Blunsdon St Andrew Parish Council no longer covering the newly built North Swindon area within its boundaries, with the A419 serving as the dividing line.
The proposed new parish council covers a significant urban area: Abbey Meads, St Andrew’s Ridge, Ash Brake, Groundwell West and Redhouse.
The meeting on Wednesday 14 September, 6pm to 8pm, at Redhouse Community Centre, Frankel Avenue, will be chaired by Paula Harrison of the borough’s community governance review team. It will be a chance for householders to ask questions about the parishing proposal and about the implications of splitting an existing parish council.
