High Street Re-Surfacing......and it’s business as usual

marlborough high streetWork on the re-surfacing of Marlborough’s famously wide High Street starts on 5th August.  Not undertaken for 23 years, this is the largest project of its type in the county this year and represents a £400,000 investment in the town.  It will take around 6 weeks to complete with work being undertaken Monday to Friday between 6pm – midnight (7pm – midnight on Friday).  There will be no work at weekends.  This is to help ensure that there is minimum disruption to the High Street so it's business as usual.  Associated work around road markings, new bollards, signage and even underground ducting in preparation for future installation of electrical points will give the town a welcome face lift.

Welcome to our new Councillors!

Following an Extraordinary Meeting of the Town Council on Wednesday, 26th June, we welcome Mervyn Hall (East Ward) and Alec Light (West Ward) to the team.  Both bring lots of experience to the roles and are keen to work closely with the community.  They were co-opted onto the Council from a strong field of 7 candidates and will serve until the next full elections in May 2017. 

The Town Council was delighted that there was a such a keen interest in the vacancies and would like to thank our candidates, all of whom were of a very high calibre, for stepping forward for co-option.
