8. TRAFFIC CONCERNS AT THE BIDDESTONE CROSSROADS
This topic was discussed at length during the public gallery. It was decided that the new layout may need revising, and as a result highways would be contacted and asked to have a fresh look at the layout. Because of the speed traffic travels along the A420 it is thought that visibility might be the main issue when using the crossroads.

There were no objections raised to the application, and would therefore be approved.
10. COUNCILLORS QUESTIONS AND ITEMS FOR FUTURE MEETINGS
It was mentioned by several people throughout the village how nice the planters look, and how tidy the footpath behind the village hall has been lately. Our thanks goes to Jim Bruce Scott for his work.
The metro count that has been placed by John Aubrey Close should have been placed closer to Phillips Garage, Martin Rose at Wiltshire Council will be contacted to ask him to have it moved.
Also raised was the topic of having a Metro Count placed in Tiddleywink, the speed of traffic has been bought to the attention of Wiltshire Council as a community issue by residents in Tiddleywink.
