No Parish Council Election for Ansty on May 6th

Dear Ansty Villagers,

The confirmation statement of candidates nominated to stand for election for the 5 seats on Ansty Parish Council has been released on the Wiltshire Council Website. We have four nominations and no other entries. Accordingly, there will not be a parish council election in Ansty on May 6th. We are one councillor short and we should be filling that space with a volunteer from the village to give us our full compliment.

It is important that the village is fully represented and villagers should consider whether now is the right time for them ‘do their turn’ on the Parish Council. If you are interested please contact Mr Tim Martin in the first instance.

ANSTY PARISH COUNCIL MEETING:  Held on December 17th; 6 pm.

Dear Ansty Villager,


The latest Ansty Parish Council draft minutes have been published! (posted 19-01-2020)

Ansty Parish Council managed two ‘open meetings’ last year, despite the coronavirus pandemic. One was held in February and and another in December – both in St James’ Church.  They did try a video conference meeting in late May using ‘zoom’ but our well known patchy broadband defeated them! A few masked and socially distanced villagers attended the mid December meeting; the councillors were also entirely socially distanced and fully masked and the brisk meeting covered a number of issues. Click on the image to read the latest draft minutes.

There is still time for villagers to consider

  • Raising any issues you would like our Councillors to raise during an online meeting that is scheduled to take place with our MP Dr Murrison early next year.
  • Following requests from residents, we have been in contact with Wiltshire Council’s traffic engineer about speeds and hazards on the A30.  To reinforce our case we would welcome details of incidents/experiences/concerns that will help illustrate the serious concerns villagers have.
  • Expressing your views on Wiltshire Local Plan. See top panel on this page. 

Kind Regards,

Julie Ann Murphy.  Parish Clerk  (email: )  (updated 19-01-2021)

Parish Clerk Post

We are still looking to fill the Ansty parish clerk post as our current clerk Julie Ann Murphy has decided to step down. We are a small parish council, in fact one of the smallest in our area and therefore the duties are not onerous.

If there is anybody local who might like to take on this position please contact parish council chairman Mr Tim Martin to find out more details via email:
