CONSTRUCTION of the Melksham Community Campus is scheduled to begin this year, with the appointment of a main contractor expected soon.
Wiltshire Council has also confirmed that enabling works will begin early in the new year in preparation for the contractor to move onto the site.
A Wiltshire Council spokesperson said, “We’re expecting to appoint the main contractor in early 2020.
“Early in the new year we will begin enabling works, which will facilitate the contractor starting on site. These include; repair to the stone wall and piers at the Place Road boundary, works to trees across the site and demolition of the redundant football/rugby club outbuildings.
“Construction of the campus will begin – a revised programme and further details will be provided in the new year.
“A report will be going forward to a council cabinet meeting outlining a detailed business case for the future of Melksham House.”
After months of delays, the campus project began to pick up momentum at the end of last year, with the project finally receiving planning permission, and the approval an additional £3m, increasing the total capital budget for the campus to £20.1m. Construction is expected to be completed next year, in 2021.
