There were eight councillors present at the Parish Council meeting held on Monday 12 July 2004. Also present were three members of the public and Dick Tonge (District Councillor)
Regarding the casual vacancy on the Council, NWDC had confirmed that no requests for an election were received. The Parish Council had received only one application for the post - from mrs Heather McKibbin and she was unanimously co-opted as a Parish Councillor.
The following planning applications were considered and no objections raised:
amended plans for internal and external alterations and single storey extension to agricultural building to convert to 3 workshop units at Wick Farm; external alterations to provide pair of French doors to west elevation at New Farm; removal of two plum trees at Lacock Abbey; felling of one poplar tree at the Old Rectory. With regard to an application for the erection of a three bay garage at De Bijenkopf the Council felt that the size of the proposed building was excessive in relation ot the dwelling house. The Planning Inspectorate has advised that an inquiry will be held re land at Notton Park on 15 March 2005 at the Council Offices Monkton Park, Chippenham.
Recent rubbish collection problems in East Street were highlighted and it was agreed that NWDC be asked to send a smaller vehicle to collect at the same time as Nethercote Hill.
The next meeting of the Parish Council will be on Monday 13 Sep at 7.30pm in the Manor Room. Members of Press and Public are cordially invited to attend.
Between 9th and 10th July a fencing unit was stolen from fields in Notton and on the 23rd a bag and contents was stolen from a premises in the village. Overnight 12/13th cash was stolen from a premise in Church Street. Some of the cash has been recovered and an offender identified.

This is an open letter to everyone who has an interest in local history. you may have attended all our meetings, just a few or none at all.
We were formed in 1988 and since then have met on more than 40 occasions, both visiting places of special interest and having excellent speakers in the Village Hall. We would now like to hear from you regarding our future. Should we remain just an informal group or should we, like all other historical societies I have contaced, have a formal constitution? This need not be a long wordy document but something quite simple - Dr Alan Dodge has offered me a copy of the one they have at Freshford.
My own view is that now we have been given some intersting scrpbooks, photos, census returns, etc. it would be the right time to have a written constitution. We would then have an AGM o[pen to everyone when officers and a commmittee would be elected. What do you think? Would you like to get more involved? Please let me have your reply as soon as possible.

Our programme for 2005 is now being prepared and we would welcome suggestions for both outside visits and talks in the Manor Room. Please let Jenny Harding or John Taylor know what you would like us to arrange.
