West Swindon Parish Council

Welcome to the West Swindon Parish Council Website. 

Dear Residents

As we move through the Winter months, it is a busy time for the Parish Council.  We have agreed our budget for next year and spending plans.  As in previous years, our grounds team are currently focused on the annual shrub cut.  The team focus on one area at a time and generally the routes are as follows:

October to November     Sparcells, Nine Elms, Grange Park, Peatmoor and Middleleaze

December to January    Ramleaze, Shaw, Eastleaze and Westlea

February to March         Toothill and Freshbrook

We continue to do what we can to promote a clean, green and well cared for environment.  This Winter we have enhanced your local Parish service with a new small hit squad who are tackling one neighbourhood at a time, taking on forgotten shrub beds, long standing graffiti, hidden fly tipping, street signs and giving each area a general clean up.

Work is getting underway to start our biggest project to date.  We have commissioned improvements to seven play areas in West Swindon, see our web page for more details Exciting New Play Areas 2020

Many of you are concerned about trees where you live.  Trees remain the responsibility of Swindon Borough Council and issues relating to trees and maintenance should be reported directly to them: Swindon Borough Council.  

Over the coming months, the grounds team will work across West Swindon and the cleansing team will continue to empty bins, and, tackle flytipping and litter..  We welcome volunteers and you can find out more on our community page  West Swindon Community & Volunteering.  

You can make a non urgent request for service on our online form Request a Service.  If the matter is urgent, and relates to the Parish Council's street cleaning, play areas or shrub works, you can contact the Parish team on 01793 466418.

We hope you see a difference where you live.
