Wichelstowe News

Divided Wichelstowe
Central South Swindon Parish includes Old Town, Eastcott, the Town Centre, Walcot, Parks, Lawn, Badbury Park and East Wichel. However, Middle and West Wichel have been assigned to the existing parish of Wroughton.

A petition is circulating asking for Wichelstowe to be kept in one piece, and there is a change.org petition too available here. If 750 signatures are collected, the petition can be debated at a Council meeting in January.

Wichelstowe Design Code
We would like to hear your views on the emerging design code for the Wichelstowe District Centre. Please let us know what you think about pedestrian and cycle access, the street character, buildings, schools, possible gym and GP surgery. See www.wichelstowe.co.uk for up-to-date information.

East Wichel Parking
The East Wichel Restricted Parking Zone is now in operation. Parking is only permitted in the designated parking bays. The 26-space car park at the local centre should be open by Christmas. The parking restrictions will be reviewed next year. Please let us know your suggestions.
