Highworth Town Council has taken on the responsibility of mowing the verges and cutting shrubs on behalf of Swindon Borough Council, we also empty the litter bins and litter pick/sweep the pavements on its behalf. While the shopping areas are done before 8.00am every morning, other areas of the town are done less frequently according to condition.
The Council has also taken on the lavatories at Brewery Street which are in the process of being re-built. There will be a charge for ‘spending a penny’ once the build is complete.
Our Parking Attendant is employed at the request of the Local Businesses. The Businesspeople of the Town recognised that if cars parked all day in the the Market Square car-park, their customers would not be able to park and would likely go elsewhere.
Jane (the Parking Attendant) issues Polite Notices to anyone parking for more than two hours in the Market Place – as a reminder. As this limit is at the request of the Townspeople could we respectfully ask that it is complied with?
We are also responsible for the Upper and Lower Recreation Grounds and play area, the Barra play areas and Barra Field, Crane Furlong field and the Haresfield Play area. Although our Groundmen inspect the play equipment weekly, if you notice any problems, please could you ring the office and let us know.
