Interested in shaping a new Community Campus for Marlborough?

Campus proposals are being developed across the county and will help deliver services which are value for money, tailored to local needs and influenced by the local community.  Now it’s Marlborough’s turn.  The campus could be new buildings or improved and developed existing buildings for use for different purposes and by a variety of people and organisations.  Local input is key to this.  Wiltshire Council is looking for keen members of the community to sit on a Community Operations Board to help bring it all together. doc If you are interested in being part of this please open this document.140.5 KB

PLANNING PROPOSAL CONCERNING LAND OFF RABLEY WOOD, MARLBOROUGH

The public and any interested party are invited to attend an exhibition relating to a proposal for residential development on land off Rabley Wood View, Marlborough.

The event will be held at Marlborough Town Hall on Tuesday 29th October 2013 between 3.00pm and 8.00pm.

The site is the existing area of open space to the north of Rabley Wood View and lies within the limits of development of Marlborough. The site is owned by Wiltshire Council but the application is to be made by the Manton Estate.

The proposal is to develop the existing 1.7 hectare area of open space (owned by Wiltshire Council) for housing and provide a large replacement area of open space (14 hectares in size) in the form of a Country Park on the adjacent land which forms part of the Manton Estate.

The proposal is to submit an outline planning application for the residential development of the site. Whilst the application will be in outline form it will be supported by an indicative layout. Details of the scale and form of the proposed development will also be provided.

People who are interested are invited to call in at any time between the hours above to view the plans and discuss the proposal with the applicant’s agents. There will also be an opportunity to leave written comments should you wish to do so.

In due course a planning application will be submitted to Wiltshire Council when you will have a further chance to comment on the proposals.

First World War Commemorations

Recording Marlborough’s First World War Stories - November 9th and 10th 2013 at Marlborough Town Hall

MARLBOROUGHS FIRST WORLD WAR STORIESNext year sees the centenary of the start of the First World War, an event that changed the world forever. Every family in Britain was affected to some degree and those living in Marlborough and the surrounding villages were no exception.

To mark the beginning of Marlborough’s preparations for the centenary an event is being organised for the weekend of 9th and 10th November between 10am – 4pm in the Town Hall.  People living in Marlborough and surrounding villages are invited to come along and bring with them any photographs, objects, letters, diaries, mementos and stories/memories of the First World War.  These will be digitally recorded - photographed and oral histories recorded – to create a local digital archive, which will form a permanent record of Marlborough in the First World War.  It will also form the basis of exhibitions in the town over the four years of the centenary.

Everyone is welcome to come along – even if you have recently moved to the area .  The First World War was a global event and we would like to hear from people whose families were living in other parts of the country or abroad, as well as those from the local area.

The event is planned to coincide with the Remembrance weekend and will include displays and stands from local people and organisations. It will showcase some of the events organised for next year and provide an opportunity for people to get involved.

Marlborough played an active role in the First World War. It was used to billet successive companies of soldiers and at times took on the appearance of a garrison town. It had a Voluntary Aid Detachment hospital run by local women (located in the Wesley Hall in Oxford Street) and its own detachment of the Volunteer Training Corps, which was similar in nature to the Home Guard of World War Two.

Stolen Mayoral Chain

Marlborough Town Council is looking to the public to provide the police with any information they may have following a break in at the Town Hall on Sunday, 13th October. Town Councillors are devastated that the town’s historic Town Mayor’s ceremonial chain dating back to 1911 donated to the Town by the then Borough Mayor, Thomas Free, to mark the Coronation of George V has been stolen. We are working closely with the police and welcome any information. The chain was securely locked away with other insignia in line with insurance requirements. Nothing else was taken.

The Town Mayor said: “This is a sad day. Something of such enormous significance to the people of Marlborough has been taken. Whilst important, its monetary value is nothing compared to what it means to the history and dignity of local people. I am just really grateful that no member of the public, Councillor or our own staff were injured.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Wiltshire Police on 101 or Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.
