Housing Needs in the Marlborough Area
From consultation undertaken as part of work on the Marlborough Area Neighbourhood Plan, it was clear that affordable housing was a major concern to those living in Marlborough, Mildenhall, Preshute and Savernake. To follow this up with robust evidence, a Housing Needs Survey was undertaken and a report issued. The independent consultants commissioned to undertake this work will be coming to Marlborough to give their feedback and analysis of the report as well as the results of an associated survey about business and employment. Everyone is invited to hear this at a public meeting at the Town Hall on Tuesday, 24th October at 7pm. There’ll be a chance to ask questions and hear about how the Neighbourhood Plan will try to address some of these housing issues.
The report is available on the Neighbourhood Plan website.
