UPDATE 21 October 2020
At its meeting on 14 October, the Council considered the approach to a ceremony under current Covid restrictions. At the time of writing, Wiltshire remains in Level 1 (Medium) with restrictions on Rule of 6 and social distancing. The Council agreed to put in place plans for a Ceremony at the War Memorial on Sunday 8 November at 11.00 am. Strict social distancing will be in place and, should the Government rules change, additional measures may be required or the Ceremony changed. Details will be published on the Council’s website. It was decided to live stream the ceremony via Zoom to enable those unable to attend to be part of the Ceremony.
Only 30 people will be allowed onto the War Memorial quadrangle but a road closure will be in place on South Street from 10.45am and this space will be available for anyone wishing to attend, observing social distancing. Anyone self-isolating or displaying any Covid symptoms must not attend.
Further details on how to join the Ceremony via Zoom will be included here nearer the date.

NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN CONSULTATION BEGINS
The Neighbourhood Plan is our plan for how we want Broad Chalke to progress in terms of our community, environment, and amenities, whilst preserving what makes the village special.
The final stage of local consultation on the Broad Chalke Neighbourhood Plan was concluded on 15 March 2020 and a revised Plan submitted to Wiltshire Council.
A Local Referendum will be held in due course once Covid-19 restrictions are eased. The Referendum is not likely to be before spring 2021.
To date the Plan has received strong local support and has achieved a great deal, including implementation of our Community Hub, village car parking, pathways and village green. The final Plan includes village proposals for a small Community led housing scheme to meet local needs.

Hard copies of the Plan and forms are also available in the Community Hub coffee shop.
