WILTSHIRE Council will be giving an update on the campus project at Melksham Area Board tonight (Wednesday).
Laurie Bell, associate director of the county council, will take up a ten minute slot at the meeting to speak on the campus and Market Place regeneration.
It will be the first official announcement since the area board in February, which was attended by 160 local people and saw councillors agree to press on with new plans for the health and wellbeing centre.
And it follows a front page story in the last issue of Melksham News highlighting the lack of news about the campus.
The area board is at Melksham Assembly Hall tonight (Wednesday 15th June) at 7pm.
Wiltshire is expected to currently be drawing up plans for the £16million development. However, town councillor Jon Hubbard told Melksham Independent News recently there is ‘no way on this planet’ that can be done until an agreement is reached with Melksham Town Council regarding moving its offices and the assembly hall.
The campus project has been in various stages of planning and discussion for around five years. The new football and rugby facilities are nearing completion at Woolmore Farm and work is expected to begin at Melksham House once the clubs have moved into the new ground.
The area board will also see updates from Melksham’s football and rugby clubs, the Link canal project, and will decide on over £10,000 worth of grant applications from local groups.
