A short film explaining the Melksham 2026 project, which looks at the future development of Melksham and its surrounding villages, has now been uploaded to new Melksham Neighbourhood Plan website.
The film was made at the Plan Open House event which took place in March. It shows clips from the event and snippets from the official launch of the project, when speakers explain what the Neighbourhood Plan is all about and how people can get involved and have their say.
The plan steering group plans to show the film on its stand at the Food and River Festival in the George V Park on Sunday 6th September and other community events to be held over the summer.
Steering group spokesperson, Nick Westbrook said, “The film explains what we are trying to do to ensure that Melksham and its surrounding area in the future is a great place to live, work, play … and visit.
“Local people are already sharing their views about how they want to see Melksham and the neighbouring area develop as a community over the next 10 years. Some really exciting suggestions have already been made about making better use of land locally.
“These are now being considered by the task groups helping to produce the Neighbourhood Plan. It is not too late for everyone, whatever age, to have their say.”
