SERVICES PROVIDED BY WROUGHTON PARISH COUNCIL

ALLOTMENTS

The Parish Council’s allotment site in Moormead Road contains over 170 plots of varying sizes, the most common being approx. 125 sq metres (5 perch).  Annual rent is currently £5.50 per 25 sq metres (1 perch).

 

In addition to the obvious benefits of growing your own flowers, fruit and vegetables, having an allotment can also provide a sense of achievement and well-being, along with the chance to learn new skills.

 

It can be great fun for all the family, providing fresh air and exercise. Allotments can also help protect the environment and generate community spirit, offering an opportunity to meet people from all walks of life.

Useful Reference Information

 

Our Tenancy Agreement which is signed by both the tenant and the Council sets out the terms and conditions of tenancy.

 

The Council also has Allotment Guidelines.  This document provides guidance and more information relating to the allotments and should be read in conjunction with the Tenancy Agreement.

 

New tenancies are allocated in accordance with our waiting list procedure, details of which can be found in the Allotment Guidelines booklet.

 

An Annual Plot Holder Meeting is held at the end of September. Click here for notes of the last Annual Plot Holders Meeting.

CHILDREN'S PLAY & RECREATION

The Parish Council provides children’s play and recreation areas across the Parish.  Those currently managed by us can be found at the following locations:

 

  • Weir Field – Devizes Road
  • Alexandra Park – Play Area only
  • Belmont Farm – North Wroughton
  • Boness Road Play Area
  • Beranburh Field Play Area
  • Recreation Ground and Play Area – Maunsell Way

 

There are a few play areas within the parish for which the Parish Council has not assumed leases.  These areas have not yet been handed over by developers and therefore there can be no precise timetable to complete this process.  These facilities are in different stages of their lifetime, some requiring considerable spending to improve safety and update equipment, whilst others are in a more satisfactory condition.

 

Please note that the following areas have not yet been adopted and these are currently still the responsibility of the developers:

 

  • Badgers Brook Play Area

 

If you notice a problem or have any questions relating to the recreational facilities maintained by the Parish Council, please get in touch with the Parish Office.
