Rt Hon Dr Andrew Murrison MP for Dilton Marsh on his Rural Rides

During the last week of July, I set off on a tour of thirty-two of South West Wiltshire’s smaller parishes and villages on what I call my ‘Rural Rides’ (with apologies to William Cobbett, the nineteenth century pamphleteer).
From Tollard Royal in the south to Bulkington in the north, I set up in village halls - I have so many of these great buildings in my constituency I thought I’d write a book about them when I have time dedicated perhaps to Cobbett – but also pubs, churches, shops and leisure centres.
On the Tuesday I spent an hour with Dilton Marsh residents in the Memorial Hall which has served the community well since its refurb a while back. Thanks to all those who came to see me and to Kathy Hutt who helped organise the stop.
I’m regularly in touch with residents in Dilton Marsh to discuss a wide variety of issues. But, with Covid having halted so much face-to-face interaction over the last 18 months, I felt it was important to get out and about, re-establish a presence, and meet people who might otherwise find it difficult to come and see me.
Across the constituency, the biggest issue was roads - with heavy traffic topping the bill. I can’t magic it away, but I can make the issue more prominent with those who may be able to help. That’s how MPs work, and even sometimes change things, using whatever tools we have – meetings, phone calls, tub-thumping, letters and, whisper it, the media.
As in other parishes through the week, access to General Practice healthcare was raised with me in Dilton Marsh. I have sought an explanation from the Clinical Commissioning Group – personally, I am not sure why this area should have a problem as it should be attractive to GPs. Locals also voiced concerns over the unkept hedges along the sides of roads. This low-cost unkept look seems to be favoured by the council under the guise of rewilding, but it should be balanced with road safety. I have written to the council about it expressing the hope that once the summer’s blooms are done we might see some tidying up. Dilton Marsh, being proximate to Westbury, has a particular interest in the proposals for a so-called energy-from-waste incinerator at Northacre. I have been lobbying hard against this and asked the minister Robert Jenrick to place a moratorium on waste burning permissions, in this year of all years given the UK’s hosting of the COP26 climate change conference in Glasgow in November.
Thank you again to everyone who came to say hello. I plan to run ‘Rural Rides’ again soon but, in the meantime, if you would like to get hold of me please email [email protected] or call 01225 358584. I post regularly on my website; www.andrewmurrison.co.uk



The Great Big Dilton Marsh Litter Pick

Look out for upcoming dates on Facebook and on posters around the village.

Let's make this place squeaky clean!!



Carriageway repair works programmed on B3099 Clivey.

These works involve the reinstatement of road marking following the recently applied Surface Dressing.

These works will be completed Thursday 19th of August 2021 between the hours of 19:00 and 06:00. However, on occasions, works may over run due to uncontrollable circumstances such as plant breakdowns and unfavourable weather conditions.

Due to the nature of the works and the local environment the works will be carried out within a temporary road closure, to ensure that adequate health & safety is maintained for both the Contractor and local residents.

The main diversion route for all ‘through’ traffic whilst works are being undertaken within the road closure will be as per the attached road diversion drawing. Signing will be in place advising that local businesses will be open as usual.

The contractor will maintain pedestrian access for residents for the duration of the works; but depending upon what operation is being undertaken and where it’s being undertaken residents may find that when accessing or egressing from their property in their vehicle, they may experience a delay and have to wait for plant to be moved out of the carriageway. It has been advised to residents that when leaving their property to allow extra time for any possible delays and when returning to their property, to speak to traffic management operatives located at the extents of the works who will be able to assist. There will be points during the lining process where vehicular access will be restricted as residents won’t be able to drive over the new road markings, therefore it has been recommended to resident that if works are being undertaken in the vicinity of their property to speak to the workforce in advance to ask if there will be any restrictions with regards to access.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause but trust you will appreciate the necessity for these essential works to maintain Wiltshire’s highway network.
Should you require any further information in advance of the works please refer to https://one.network/?tmi=GB20968308. If you wish to discuss the works whilst they are in operation, please speak to a member of the workforce who will direct you to the appropriate person on site.

RT HON DR ANDREW MURRISON MP COMING TO DILTON MARSH

He will be visiting Dilton Marsh’s Memorial Hall on Tuesday 27th July between 11:15am-12:15pm to meet residents who want his help or advice.
Alternatively Andrew can be contacted on 01225358584 or [email protected]


Carriageway repair works programmed on B3099 Clivey.

These works involve surface dressing over patches that were completed earlier this year.

These works will be completed Friday 23rd of July 2021 between the hours of 07:00 and 19:00. However, on occasions, works may over run due to uncontrollable circumstances such as plant breakdowns and unfavourable weather conditions. Road markings will be replaced in the weeks following the completion of the surface dressing works.

Due to the nature of the works and the local environment the works will be carried out within a temporary road closure, to ensure that adequate health & safety is maintained for both the Contractor and local residents.

The main diversion route for all ‘through’ traffic whilst works are being undertaken within the road closure will be as per the attached road diversion drawing.

The contractor will maintain pedestrian access for residents for the duration of the works; but depending upon what operation is being undertaken and where it’s being undertaken residents may find that when accessing or egressing from their property in their vehicle, they may experience a delay and have to wait for plant to be moved out of the carriageway. It has been advised to residents that when leaving their property to allow extra time for any possible delays and when returning to their property, to speak to traffic management operatives located at the extents of the works who will be able to assist. There will be points during the material laying process where vehicular access will be restricted as residents won’t be able to drive over the newly laid material, as early trafficking could lead to premature failure, therefore it has been recommended to resident that if works are being undertaken in the vicinity of their property to speak to the workforce in advance to ask if there will be any restrictions with regards to access.

Advanced signing will be erected and letter drops to all residents located within the site extents will commence Monday 5th of July 2021. Signing will be in place advising that local businesses will be open as usual.

Should you require any further information in advance of the works please refer to https://one.network/?tmi=GB20532139.
