    Weight Restriction of 7.5 tonnes
    on local roads

    Wiltshire Council have imposed a weight restriction on local roads. This is to preserve the amenities of the area and prevent damage to the road and nearby buildings by heavy commercial vehicles over 7.5 tonnes.

    The Order covers Gomeldon Road, from Policeman's Corner to the Porton crossroads with Winterslow Road (including East Gomeldon Road and other roads in Gomeldon). Also, Idmiston Road from Porton crossroads (Chapman's Corner), through Idmiston and as far as the junction with the A338 about half a mile from The Earl of Normanton pub.

    The Order came into effect on 3rd May 2010

    The Bourne Valley Alliance of Parish Councils:
    What is it?

    The BVAPC is an alliance of the five parishes of the Bourne Valley; Cholderton, Newton Tony, Allington with Boscombe, Idmiston and Winterbourne. It was formed to promote the interests of the Bourne Valley community (3,569 residents) and to negate Boundary Commission proposals that the valley be split into two separate Electoral Divisions. Whether this succeeds or not, the BVAPC is an important new entity which has been publicised in the Salisbury Journal.

    The BVAPC meets at least quarterly and more often when there are serious issues to discuss. The composition of the BVAPC is Chairman or Deputy Chairman of each of the five member Parish Councils. The interests and permanent agenda of the BVAPC encompass mutual interests in:

  • The A338, its condition, traffic flow and safety
  • The River Bourne and its flood plain
  • Education and the Salisbury Diocese of Churches in the Bourne Valley
  • Bourne Valley Good Neighbour Link Scheme, which has provided help and support for Bourne Valley residents since 2004
    Bourne Valley Day Centre, which has met every Friday to provide a day of social care for the elderly since 1981
    Bourne Valley Historical Society, which was formed in 1948 to record and conserve the history of the Bourne Valley
    Distribution of funds available from building works for projects in the Bourne Valley community
    The newly proposed Bourne Valley Youth Scheme to help the youth of the area enjoy the available amenities within the Bourne Valley
  • The current Winterbourne PC representative on BVAPC is David Baker.
