What We Do

The parish council works alongside Swindon Borough Council on issues such as highways, planning and the environment. For example, the Borough council takes care of tree maintenance, public footpaths and bridleways, graffiti clearance and large loads of fly-tipping.

In addition, the Parish Council provides a variety of services for the community. These include the maintenance, repair or enhancement of Parish assets, including:

  • The Old Chapel
  • The Recreation Hall and Grounds
  • Sports Pavilion
  • Castle View Play Area
  • Butts Road Cemetery
  • Sir Henry Calley Memorial Garden

Our responsibilities also extend to other environmental work – such as emptying the dog bins – and providing support to the local community through small grants and donations. Some of these help fund local groups such as the Washpool Area Restoration Project and the BIOS Youth Project.

How We Meet

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, from May 2020 until further notice, all council meetings will take place using the online meeting platform, Zoom. The video below has a tutorial on how to install and use it.

Additional Services from 2016

As a result of recent changes to funding, Chiseldon Parish Council now furnishes additional services. Our new service model means that the Parish Council provides:

  • grass cutting
  • hedge trimming
  • light street cleaning
  • litter clearance
  • emptying of litter bins

More About Our Work

All of our services are implemented through the actions of our four committees. You can find out more about the Parish council’s work, past and present, by visiting each committee’s pages:
