News from Marlborough Town Council
On a warm spring evening at the Annual Meeting of the Town Council on 14 May 2018, and watched by the High Sheriff of Wiltshire, Mrs Nicky Alberry and a packed room of invited guests, Cllr. Lisa Farrell was elected Town Mayor and outgoing Mayor, Cllr. Mervyn Hall, was elected as Deputy Mayor. We wish our new Mayor every success for the coming year.
Have Your Say on Parking Charges
Wiltshire Council has opened a consultation around Road Traffic Regulation Orders on the introduction of parking charges for Sundays and Bank Holidays as well as changes to the cost of season tickets. We were all informed about this happening back in February and this is another chance to let the Unitary Authority have your views on it. Details of the changes are here. There is also a set of reasons behind the proposals here. General information about Traffic Order Consultations can be found here. The Town Council will be making a corporate response and it is important that others respond too.
The consultation runs to 21 May 2018. You can respond in writing to: Traffic Order Team, Highways and Transport, Wiltshire Council, County Hall, Trowbridge BA14 8JN; by email to email@example.com or use the online form, quoting WILTS/TRO/Parking.
Annual Report - Another Busy Year!
In April we published the Annual Report for 2017-18 containing details of the projects and activities undertaken by your Town Council in the past year. With Mayor Making taking place at the Annual Town Council meeting on Monday, 14 May it's a good time to look back at all that has been achieved during Cllr. Mervyn Hall's year as Town Mayor. Paper copies of the report are also available from our office.

20mph Speed Restrictions - Consultation Feedback
Thank you to all those who took the time to participate in our recent public consultation about 20mph speed restrictions in parts of Marlborough. All responses have been collected and collated and brought together in a report which is available here.
At an Extraordinary Full Council meeting on 30 April, Town Councillors considered this feedback and voted in favour of recommending to Wiltshire Council's Community Area Transport Group (CATG) that 20mph speed restrictions are put in place in the full qualifying areas of Marlborough with the addition of 20mph roundels on St Martins and Kingsbury Street. This was in line with the overall outcome of the consultation exercise.
