LATEST UPDATES

Annual Town Meeting  The Town Council will hold the Annual Town Meeting on 28 April 2014. Details are here.

Campus Update:  Plans for the new campus combining services have now been submitted and are available on the Wiltshire Council website here under planning application reference No: 14/00726.

The Campus plans will be discussed at Melksham Town Council's Planning meeting on Monday 10 March at 6.30pm in the Town Hall.

Melksham Neighbourhood Plan:  A joint Neighbourhood Plan is being formulated as a result of the new Localism Act 2011, which seeks to encourage communities to become proactively involved in decisions about planning matters at a local level.  This process provides a unique opportunity to shape future development within the locality and Melksham Town Council and Melksham Without Parish Council have committed to work together to create a plan for the Melksham area.

The Plan will be generated through a process of consultation and engagement with local residents who will then be asked to vote on it and, if it is approved, it will be adopted as part of the development plan for Wiltshire.

As an initial part of this process, an application must be made to desigate the Melksham Neighbourhood Area which encompasses the combined area of the two parish councils.

Wiltshire Council have commenced a consultation exercise in respect of this application and would welcome comments on the proposal.  The closing date for comments is Tuesday 18 March 2014.

A map showing the proposed Melksham Neighbourhood Area, together with guidance as to how to view and comment on the proposal, can be found here

 The Melksham Link       Plans to restorate the Wilts and Berks Canal through Melksham are underway. For a video of the project click here.
