Valley Parishes Alliance
The Avon & Limpley Stoke Valley is an exceptional area. Protecting and conserving it, in the face of major regeneration and development in the wider BANES and Wiltshire area, is an ever increasing challenge. A cross-border Valley Parishes Alliance (VPA) has, therefore, been established to provide a unified voice on social, economic and environmental issues which could affect BANES and Wiltshire communities in the valley.
Bathford Parish Council is represented and they have just set up their own Valley Parishes Alliance website

The full version is available for viewing on the notice boards in the Community Shop, in the Parish Office and in the Parish Hall. It is also available from this website using the link below but please be aware that it will take around 15 minutes to download on a standard dialup connection.

What is a Village Design Statement?
We all agree that Bathford is unique, but what makes it special?
The Village Design Statement, which has a wealth of detail on the Parish, has been approved and copies can be viewed in the Parish Office or available for sale to cover printing costs. As the full original document is 64 colour pages it was too large until now to place on the website but it has now been split into sections for ease of access.
