Bees Needs: Food and a Home 

 

 

Is your garden bee-friendly?

Image We are aiming to map all the bee-friendly gardens in Marlborough in an effort to increase the numbers of bumble bees, solitary bees and other important pollinators. We also want to work with our friends in Pewsey to create a wide corridor of wild flower gardens, hedgerows and meadows between our 2 towns that can provide forage for honey bees.

Air Quality in Marlborough

Image

20 mph speed limits in built-up areas not only reduce accidents but also reduce the air pollution associated with braking and accelaration. The Sustainable Transport Group is working with Marlborough Town Council and the Area Board to determine whether it would be approriate to install a 20 mph speed limit covering all the built-up areas of the town.

The first step is to install metrocounts on all roads that lead into the town centre to determine current traffic speeds. Wiltshire Council will only agree to reducing the speed limit if the average traffic speed, as shown on these metrocounts, is 24 mph or less. This means that if we want a 20 mph speed limit on our roads, we should already be travelling at speeds of less than 24 mph.  

This is only the first step to reducing air pollution in our town. Read our report on' Improving Air Quality in Marlborough', here...
