New Members Co-opted for Heytesbury Imber & Knook Parish Council

Six local residents stood for co-option on to the Heytesbury, Imber & Knook Parish Council earlier this week after members voted for their preferred candidates at its monthly meeting. The process of co-option ensures that a costly election is not undertaken, which benefits all who live in the Parish. Each Councillor can vote for one candidate each round and this continues until a majority vote is achieved. There was only one round of voting needed and the two candidates reaching the necessary majority were Louise Morris and Elizabeth Colvin. Chairman Ann Perry said: “I am delighted that the Parish Council will now be a full complement of eleven and I am looking forward to the new members getting involved in the parish’s many activities.”


The Outside Spaces Working Group continue to work hard at managing all the Council’s interests around the villages in the Parish, particularly the set-up of allotment plots at Knook. The supply of water is required as well as the preparation of a management system for potential users. It is hoped that the new site will be ready by Spring 2018.


Members are, however, looking to set up a Parish-wide volunteer party to assist with a village clean-up and if anyone is interested in joining, or residents have an idea of work to be completed, the Clerk or Councillors would love to hear from you.
