************************


Market Lavington is a large, friendly and thriving village on the northern slopes of Salisbury Plain, situated about five miles south of Devizes. Market Lavington has always been a lively community, and for centuries was one of Wiltshire's foremost market towns, having been granted a royal charter in 1252 by Henry III.

Although it has all the character and charm of a traditional Wiltshire village, and is set in the midst of beautiful countryside, Market Lavington has always been a working community. Today its facilities include a Co-op supermarket, chemist, butcher, and post office, two hairdressers, a pub & restaurant with accommodation, cafe, takeaways and a number of small businesses, so you can buy almost anything you need in the village. We also have a pre-school, a primary school and a secondary school (all rated good, by OFSTED), a doctors' surgery, a library, a community hall, Old School Hall and our very own Village Museum!

The parish lies at the foot of the north western scarp slope of Salisbury Plain. It originally contained Easterton, now a separate civil parish, and Gore, now in West Lavington. The parish is long and narrow with Gault clay in the north, rising to a ridge of Upper Greensand at about 96 metres at Ledge Hill. This ridge is known as the Sands and was common land for many centuries. In the 18th century its light fertile soil provided suitable land for commercial orchards and market gardening. Half the parish is on the chalk uplands (military area) that rises to about 200m on Lavington Hill.

Latest Parish News

Police and Crime Commissioner Election

19

August 2021
words and pictures to encourage voting

Wiltshire Council is urging people to not let their holiday plans or possible COVID self-isolation stop them from voting in the upcoming Police and Crime Commissioner election - with postal and proxy voting options available.

The election takes place on 19 August so it's likely that some people might be away, or self-isolating as a result of the pandemic.

If that's the case, then people can make sure they still have their say by applying for a postal vote or registering someone to vote on their behalf. There are some key dates to remember:

  • The deadline for Wiltshire Council to receive new postal vote applications is 5pm on 4 August.
  • For people wanting to appoint a proxy to vote on their behalf, the deadline for Wiltshire Council to receive these new proxy applications is 5pm on 11 August.
  • If anything occurs on polling day itself that prevents someone from getting out to vote, then the deadline for receipt of an emergency proxy application to Wiltshire Council is 5pm on 19 August.
  • If people want to vote they have to ensure they are on the electoral register by midnight on 3 August. Those who are already on the register do not need to re-register.

More information about the election can be found at Police and Crime Commissioner election.

More information about the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon can be found at Wiltshire PCC.

Bus Service Survey - Wiltshire Council

01

August 2021
Image of bus stop sign

Wiltshire Council is asking for people to help shape the future of local bus transport, as part of an ambitious Government strategy to improve and transform services across the country.

Earlier in the year the Government published its 'Bus Back Better' vision, which underpins a national bus strategy for England that sets out ambitious reform of how services are planned and delivered.

Around £3bn has been set aside by the Government to make improvements throughout England, and Wiltshire Council is looking at how Wiltshire and our residents can benefit from this. The Government's strategy complements the council's aim to encourage more people to travel by bus to help support its carbon neutral objectives, and to reach and connect more people who live in rural communities.

The council has already been successful in getting some money from the fund, with a successful bid of £1.2m to improve demand responsive transport in the Pewsey Vale area. This will be in operation next year after a public consultation, which will help establish the most appropriate way for the service to be provided. Demand responsive transport is a flexible mode of transportation that adapts to the demands of its user groups.

In order to put together its own Bus Service Improvement Plan to share with the Government, the council is asking local people and representatives from businesses and organisations to fill out a short survey to help it establish where the current bus service offering is working, where it could be better and where it simply doesn't provide what is needed. The survey shouldn't take longer than five minutes to complete and the council is keen to hear from non-bus users, as well as those who currently use them, as this will provide a much more wide-ranging picture of the current situation and people's circumstances.

The survey will run until 23 August 2021. It can be found online at Bus Service Improvement Plan survey and hard copies will soon be available at libraries and the council's main hubs.
