HISTORY

The third largest parish in the county of Wiltshire, Bishops Cannings was first mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as held by the Bishop of Salisbury.  The parish includes the village of Coate and includes the hamlets of Bourton, Horton and Little Horton.  Previously split into two wards, Bishops Cannings and Cannings Hill, the Parish is now a single ward following the boundary changes in 2015.  With nearly 2,200 registered electors and a new housing development at Lay Wood, Bishops Cannings is a fast growing parish, nestled between Devizes and the Vale of Pewsey and within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Bishops Cannings is both a rural and urban parish with the Wansdyke to the north and the Kennet and Avon Canal passing through to Horton and beyond.  St.Mary the Virgin Church is at the heart of the village, with the primary school, four pubs, the marina, cricket club and golf club all within the parish.

Next Meeting of the Parish Council is : 16th June 2020.

The requirement to hold the Annual meeting of the Parish Council in May is removed due to Coronavirus.  The current Chair may remain in office until May 2021.  A meeting may be held later in the year, and a new Chair elected if the Council so wishes. 

Venue : Remote meeting, see June agenda for method of attendance.

Annual Parish Meeting:  No date for this meeting can be set at present because it cannot be held remotely, but must be held physically. Our understanding is that a meeting may be held at a later date when the current regulations due to Coronavirus are no longer in place.
