Cricklade Campus – The new community facility for Cricklade and neighbouring areas.

Wiltshire Council12Following 3 years of developing designs for the campus and working closely with community groups and residents, Cricklade SCOB – comprising of local volunteers appointed by the Area Board – would like to share with you the plans as part of the pre-planning consultation process.  This will be your opportunity to comment on the design proposals and we welcome your feedback.

The campus plans represent a significant investment into Cricklade by Wiltshire Council – existing facilities will be extensively refurbished and new facilities and community services added including an extended gym, facilities for police and Wiltshire Council officers to hot desk, new changing rooms for wet and dry activities, a multi-use games area and an external face-lift.

The plans will be available at Cricklade Leisure Centre from 22 October until 5 November.  Roadshows will also be taking place throughout Cricklade and the surrounding area later this month –  all residents are invited to attend these roadshows to have their say on the proposals.  Look out for posters and communications with the roadshow dates and times.

If you have any questions in advance of the preview exhibition, please email CampusConsultation@wiltshire.gov.uk or telephone 01225 718350.
