Current position…

The council continues to face financial pressures – service demands and continued grant reduction.

Budget savings:

• This year (2017/18) – £13.3m

• Next year (2018/19) – £25m

• Next 3 years – total £45m

Campus programme delivery was based on sale of assets + borrowing – no capital pot. Pay back was based on reducing maintenance backlog and running costs and releasing number of assets.

£6.4m allocated this budget year.

Capital and revenue business case required for all future campus projects based on sustainable facilities and reduced/diminishing subsidy in the future.

Melksham House site – update

Business case requires mixed use of the site to include residential development to assist funding of new centre.

Plus – the disposal of the following assets:

• Library • Christie Miller Site

• Canberra Youth Centre

Total investment for Melksham House site plus facilities delivered will exceed £23 million.

To note: Christie Miller centre in state of disrepair and ongoing maintenance required to keep  centre operational.

Next steps

• Business case to Wiltshire Council   cabinet – December 2017.

• Pre-consultation with planners underway.

• Finalise site layout and centre design.

• Planning application submission and public consultation.

• Regular area board updates throughout the programme delivery.
