Town Centre Survey
The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group is undertaking a Benchmarking review of the town centre. Benchmarking has been conducted in over 350 locations and measures performance against key indicators such as retail offer, footfall, shoppers origin, business performance and car parking. The results are used for developing regeneration projects, attracting funding, measuring the impact of events and festivals, creating town centre partnerships, planning projects and inward investment - in this case part of the overall evidence gathering to help us complete our Neighbourhood Plan.
Please take 2 minutes to complete this important survey, which runs until 2 January. Read more...
Call for Sites
Do you know of land which is potentially suitable for affordable housing, additional car parking, formal sports and recreational facilities, a new medical centre or a new cemetery?
The Neighbourhood Plan team has listened to local people in the parishes of Marlborough and Manton, Mildenhall, Preshute and Savernake about their needs, with the findings backed up by professional research and analysis. Landowners, developers and agents are now being contacted about our local needs. If you have land and are interested in developing it to meet the needs of our community, they'd like to hear from you: read more...
