The results of the Annual Holt Footpath Survey can be found on the Footpaths page of this website.
The My Wiltshire App is available to members of the public wishing to report a problem – e.g. a street light that isn’t working, fly tipping, a pot hole, etc. It can be downloaded from the Wiltshire Council website and is very easy to use.
If you would prefer to report things to me, I am still happy to pass your request to Wiltshire Council.
Until recently all green waste bins supplied by Wiltshire Council in West Wiltshire were 240 litre capacity, however, the new bins now being supplied are 180 litre in line with the size of bins in other parts of the County. The charge for green waste collection is the same for all sizes. The reduction in the size of the bins is not shown on the Wiltshire Council website when ordering a new one.
