Southern area board sets priorities

YOUNGSTERS, footpaths and vulnerable people are the priorities for the Southern Wiltshire Area Board for the coming year.

The area board hosted a special event on February 27 to look at issues and statistics for the area, and the priorities were set at a meeting on Thursday.

The priorities include continuing to progress the youth development theme from last year, looking at ways to get young people involved in the work of the area board.

The board also wants to build on the success of the footpath theme and develop ideas of how it can be enlarged to include safe cycling routes.

The third priority was to develop a new theme around supporting vulnerable people.

In order to help take the projects forward, the area board is to develop a parish clerk or chairman liaison workshop to enable to sharing of volunteers and resources in southern Wiltshire.

Glad to see footpaths/cyclepaths are on the list.The piles of timber(from felled trees in JANUARY!) are still hazardous on/beside the path between Waitrose and the river.I nearly came off my bike the other evening(very poor lighting along there.);fed up with asking Wilts council to clear it.They told me it's "in progress"!!

DOES this mean more cycling on footpaths...........
heaven forbid! How about safe-pedestrian routes free from cyclists. Only yesterday nearly got knocked flying, walking through the Close on a clearly marked 'No Cycling' footpath. I thought it was law to have a bell or something.
