Dismay as Wiltshire Council reveal that a dispute with their own Planning Department is cause of latest Campus set back.

Local councillor Jon Hubbard has responded angrily to news that there is yet another delay to Melksham’s Campus, this time because of internal disputes between departments at Wiltshire Council.

February’s Area Board saw the Conservative councillor in charge of the Campus project admit that the latest delays were because the council’s own planning department had said that his plans were not acceptable.


The scaled down campus, first set to open in 2013, has been hit by delay after delay, each described as bad luck or unforeseeable by the council.
Melksham South councillor Jon Hubbard says, “You can only be unlucky so many times before it’s clear that it’s not a lack of luck, but a lack of competance that is causing the problem.


“The powers that be at Wiltshire Council need to get a grip and sort this out. Melksham is fed up with excuses, we need to see spades in the ground.


“Telling us that the Campus is already happening because of Oakfields Stadium and the Skate Park is no good. 


“You can’t play badminton, netball, tennis, indoor 5-a-side or go to the gym there. We need the proper facility build.
“It’s time for action, not more words”.


Cllr Hubbard has demanded that a new information web site giving up to date infortmation about the campus is provided with regular newsletters letting people know what is actually happening on the scheme.
