St. Paul Malmesbury Without Parish Council

The Parish of St. Paul Malmesbury Without consists of two wards: the Westport ward (to the south west of the town) and the St. Paul ward (to the East of town). It covers the settlements of Milbourne, Cowbridge Mills, Corston, the Foxley & Common Roads and Rodbourne, Buckley Barracks and Kings Heath to name but a few, in addition to a lot of rural areas.

Parish Councillors are voted into office in an election every 4 years. The councillors volunteer their time for free. The Parish clerk is a paid employee of the Parish Council. Parish Councils raise a "precept" which is a demand on local Council Tax payers. Wiltshire Council add it to the other precepts from Police, Fire etc.

The 'precept' money is then collected from all Council Tax payers and given to the Parish Council to spend on their areas of responsibility. Parish councils currently have a limited number of duties but they all impact directly on the community. St. Paul Malmesbury Without Parish Council manages the recreation grounds, Corston nature reserve, bus shelters, benches, notice boards and waste bins. It coordinates monthly jobs for the Parish Steward, a skilled highway operative who visits parishes and towns to a schedule. It is a statutory planning consultee, which local planning authorities are legally required to consult before reaching a decision on relevant planning applications. It can make grants to support groups, organisations and charities that benefit the local community. It has councillor representation on the Patient Participation Group for the Health Centre, Malmesbury Area Board, the Local Highways & Footpath Improvement Group and on the local joint Neighbourhood Plan.

Upgrade to Milbourne Water Treatment Centre commencing 28.5.24


May 2024

Wessex Water is upgrading Milbourne Water Treatment Centre to improve reliability of the water supply to customers. This work will involve installing a new booster pump station to ensure supply to all customers in the event of an unplanned issue at the treatment centre.

Work will start on Tuesday 28 May 2024 for approximately four months and the upgrade will take place without interruption to local water supplies.

All the work will take place within the existing site which is near Monks Park. Some work may be visible during construction and there will be additional traffic using the access track to the site.

There may be some noise disruption while this work is carried out, but every effort will be made to keep this to a minimum.

Water supply services can be used as normal unless advised otherwise.

Wessex Water will shortly be writing to local customers to advise them about this work and a copy of the letter can be accessed on the link below.
