Just to let you know that we are aware of high barbed wire fence blocking this footpath. The matter has been referred to the Rights of Way and Footpaths Officers at Wiltshire Council who are in contact with the landowners and will ensure that this illegal diversion is rectified. We will keep you updated. If you wish to report it yourself you can do so on the Wiltshire App.
Taking into account the financial hardship felt by many Holt families during the pandemic, the Parish Council has voted to request zero increase in the precept (the share of council tax paid to a parish) for next year. In the face of mounting living costs we hope this goes some small way to helping. We still have a program of community projects and improvements for the village, and the decision not to increase the precept this year is not expected to adversely impact these plans.
We recently issued a statement about parking problems in the Elms. Upon further investigation Wiltshire Council have confirmed that the road is in fact, part of the public highway. However, it would be considerate to avoid parking in the Elms to allow space for residents and carers. Thank you.
Information – Footpaths Holt 7 & 8 crossing the field behind the Midlands Industrial Estate.
The field has been ploughed and re-seeded as the grass quality had become very poor, it would be greatly appreciated if walkers could use the perimeter of the field until the grass has had a chance to establish. A gentle reminder to dog owners to pick up and take home dog faeces as these are highly dangerous to cows (& children!).
The definitive rights of way remain as before but would appreciate your co-operation in the short term. The additional fencing has been removed to allow more grazing for stock.

Take part in Clean Air Day 2019 on Thursday 20 June
Holt Parish Council are supporting Clean Air Day 2019 and encouraging everyone in Holt to do at least one thing to help improve air pollution in the local community.
Air pollution is real and harms the health of millions. But there are lots of simple things we can all do to improve air quality and look after our own and other people’s health.
You can help in lots of ways, from raising awareness of air pollution with friends and family, leaving your car at home for the day, turning your engine off when sat in traffic or using chemical-free cleaning products.
More information on how you can get involved can be found on the Clean Air Day website:
