Cricklade residents sought by Wiltshire Council to help shape exciting campus project – People wishing to join should express an interest by March 20th.

Local people are being asked to help play a key role in the Cricklade campus project which will help shape the future of services in the community area.

The Shadow Community Operations Board (COB) is made up of members of the community including community groups, children and young people and town and parish council, and its role is integral in helping to direct the project. The group has been working hard to develop a “Campus” proposal, which is the term used to describe the buildings where services can be accessed for the Cricklade area.
The COB has a vacancy and would like to invite applications from residents local to Cricklade who are interested in joining the group, to express an interest and help move the project forward.
People wishing to join should express an interest by March 20th.
The Cricklade COB, would be particularly pleased to hear from young people, families or anyone who is able to represent the views of young people, to bring firsthand experience of the problems faced by the younger generation within the community.
The campus project will see modern services brought together in a building, or buildings, in a community area. Campuses could be made up of new or existing buildings and may also be used to provide partner services. One of the main aims behind campuses is to create flexible space which can be used for a variety of purposes and by a variety of people or organisations.
Even if you are unable to commit to a long term involvement, but feel you have skills and energy which could be useful, the COB would be interested to hear from you. If you want to discuss what is involved before making an application please email either Ruth Szybiak at ruthszybiak@cricklade-tc.gov.uk or Peter Colmer at Peter.Colmer@wiltshire.gov.uk
Local people can apply to be involved in the Shadow COB by completing an expression of interest form at http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/crickladecommunitycampus. They can also email
Campusconsultation@wiltshire.gov.uk.
