Wiltshire Council’s reaction to new national restrictions from 5 November

Wiltshire Council is here to support residents and businesses following the government’s announcement of a new four-week period of national restrictions to help curb the spread of COVID-19.

These additional restrictions come into force on Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December 2020.

From Thursday 5 November 2020, new restrictions for Wiltshire will mean everyone must stay at home and may leave only for a limited set of reasons, including:

  • for education (schools, colleges and universities)
  • for work, if you cannot work from home
  • for exercise and recreation outdoors with your household, support bubble or on your own with one person from another household
  • for all medical reasons, appointments and to escape injury or harm
  • to shop for food and essentials
  • to provide care for vulnerable people

Terence Herbert, Chief Executive, Wiltshire Council, said: “I would like to thank our residents and businesses for their continued commitment in helping to curb the spread of the virus. Without these efforts, we would have seen even more cases in Wiltshire”.

“Whilst infection rates in Wiltshire remain lower than in many parts of the country, we have still experienced a rising number of positive cases in recent weeks. We anticipated Wiltshire would move into a higher alert level in the coming weeks and we have already put plans in place to continue protecting our residents”.

“Whilst this is undoubtedly a worrying time, I want to reassure residents that Wiltshire Council is here for them. We are here to provide support to all of our communities, particularly our most vulnerable residents. We will also ensure that support is available for our businesses. We are also working closely with schools as they return from half-term break. All schools are COVID-19  secure and it is important that young people in Wiltshire remain in school at this time”.

“We are awaiting further details from central government about support available to businesses and the full impact the restrictions will have on council services. As soon as this is available we will provide more information”.

“Our Wellbeing Hub remains open to anyone that needs additional support. Please call us on 0300 003 4576 , Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm”.

“If we all continue to do the right thing and follow these measures, we can curb the spread of the virus and help protect ourselves and our loved ones too.”

To help stop the spread of COVID-19:

  • work from home if you can
  • limit contact with other people
  • wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms
  • wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you meet people you do not normally meeting
  • anyone who has symptoms should book a test and not leave home for at least 10 days. Those living in households should self-isolate for 14 days if they or any members of the household receive a positive test

you can book a test by calling 119 or visit

The council is hosting a live public COVID-19 update on Tuesday 3 November at 5pm. During the online broadcast Terence Herbert , Chief Executive will be joined by the Wiltshire Council Leader, Philip Whitehead and the Director of Public Health for Wiltshire, Kate Blackburn.  You can  use this link to access the webinar on Tuesday 3 November.

Ends.

Cllr Bottomley reported that he had completed the Collaboration survey which the Clerk forwarded to Wilts Council.  Wilts Cllr Blair-Pilling reported upgrading of the Broadband for Lower Everleigh was going to happen and that the build was to take place in October with the opening to happen in due course.  Cllr Wheeler-Mallows agreed to monitor the implementation of this project.        Action.  Cllr Wheeler-Mallows.

7.         County Cllr Report.  Wilts Cllr Blair-Pilling reported the following: As back in July it is all moving rather quickly.  I appreciate that you are focussed more on local parish matters, that you receive all the Council Communications and you all watch the news.  He then touched on the following:

COVID in that, while Swindon has been a focus of concern and local outbreak management, Wiltshire has continued with low infection rates with only minor events such as Bakery in Devizes.  Our Public Health officers are working v closely with Swindon.

Organisation – Now in Recovery Phase in which Local Authorities take the lead, but able to revert to Response mode if necessary. Our Local Outbreak Management Plan was agreed on 23 July 2020. It is available online, dynamic and will be updated as national guidance or legislation changes.

Recent notable Council activity – Through August – Leisure Centres reopening in phases – by Centre, hours and activity – focus on gymnasium & swimming.  No cafes or creches. Need to book sessions.  Tidworth & Marlborough open 7 Sep. Amesbury and Durrington aiming for end of September. Libraries:  6 x main open for browse and computer use.  In next phase of openings Amesbury & Marlborough open 14 Sep with Click and Collect and bookable computer access.  Now focussed on mobile libraries and working with local volunteer leaders on how and when to reopen smaller libraries.

Implementing social distancing measures in towns to help pedestrians, cyclists and businesses and assisting schools’ preparations.

Evaluating the good practice and lessons on areas such as video-conferencing, alternative service delivery and how communities reacted so positively and co-operatively.

Finance – There are immediate and undoubtedly long lasting significant financial implications for Wiltshire’s economy, communities and residents as well as the Council itself. The government has promised that in the forthcoming Spending Review it will determine what support councils need to help them meet the pressures of income loss from council tax and business rates.

Legal and Governance – Gradually reintroducing face to face informal meetings, but not yet able to return to our principal formal public meetings in person (e.g. Council, Cabinet and Scrutiny, Planning)

Workforce – We have maintained government guidance on working at home and staff have been asked to remain working at home wherever possible to maintain their safety.  Gradually returning where necessary for function or personal well-being.

Parish Matters.

Precept – Be mindful that any increases in those eligible for Universal Credit brings a reduction in their liability for council taxes and hence reduces Wiltshire Council and Parish tax bases.  In effect for the same sum we divide among fewer payees.

8.         Police Report.  PCSO A Jones reported the following by email:

June.  12.06.2020 – Everleigh – Unknown suspect has cloned a credit card and purchased items.

August.  21.08.2020 – EVERLEIGH – X 2 unknown males on quad bikes have entered IP’s farm looking for hairs. Males have then threatened to return to the location.

9.         Correspondence.  None that has been otherwise previously circulated.

            (Post Meeting Note.  The event organiser has agreed to exclude The Street by taking a route Netheravon Rd – Sewage Farm concrete track – dirt track to the Everleigh playground – byway to the South of Everleigh and also to avoid Lower Everleigh.)
