Current Village Issues for Poulton
From 8th August a new 77 timetable will be in place and will mostly cover the two existing services Monday – Friday, travelling from Cirencester to Lechlade and Highworth (for Swindon), while the service between Cirencester and Lechlade will continue to be provided on Saturdays. The new 77 daytime service also picks up at points previously served by the 861 and there is a new service 50 covering villages and communities closer to Cirencester and also providing a link to the hospital grounds which will replace the old service 78. Some communities may have fewer buses than previously as the 77 service has been revised due to poor passenger patronage. The timetable for the new service 78 is also included. This was the old service 854 which has been redesigned to fit better with public demand.

The Council has purchased and installed two mobile interactive road signs for use on the approaches in to the village. This is being part funded by Gloucestershire Highways.
The council has awarded a grant of £500 to the PCC to undertaken clearance and tree work at St Michael’s which should create enough space for a further 6 to 10 years. The council has powers, but not a duty to act as a burial authority. In the longer term consideration may need to be given to the provision of a new graveyard.
The council has been working closely with FWAG to review and monitor the flooding situation in the village. This has resulted in ditch work being done at the Lot Lane end of the village with their assistance and that of local landowners. The chairman attended the recent flooding meeting at CDC and requested a meeting with Thames Water to discuss the sewage overspill issues and that small communities are not marginalised with regard to flood control.
CDC LOCAL PLAN
The council has written to CDC objecting to the removal of SP7 from the local plan and its replacement with policy DS2 which would appear to remove all control over planning in villages.
