Chiseldon Tennis Club

Chiseldon Tennis Club courts being resurfaced

The Tennis Club is undergoing improvements to its courts, lighting and security in order to attract new members and bring the facilities into ‘match readiness’ – meaning the Club will be able to play in competitions once again.

Swindon Borough Council recently granted planning permission for the work, after
long deliberations (mainly concerning the lighting, which was deemed to be too high).

The total cost of renovation will be very near £100,000 with the funds provided by a variety of supporters and the Club itself. Work has already started and should be completed by the end of May.

Safety in New Road

New Road

A scheme to improve safety in New Road, as well as reinforcing the speed limit, is up for final approval by Swindon Borough Council (SBC).

If successful there will be a “build-out” near to the entrance of Canney Close which will form a barrier similar to the scheme in operation at South
Marston – which is reputed to work very well.

Residents who have concerns about HGVs and school buses passing the build-out should rest easy as sufficient room will be allowed.

We do not have an exact date for the SBC meeting that will consider the Scheme but it should not take too long.
