Preshute Parish Council has decided to withdraw from the Marlborough Area Neighbourhood Plan.
Whilst members of the Steering Group are disappointed that this decision has been taken, they are now working to re-designate the neighbourhood area to include Marlborough, Mildenhall and Savernake.
The process will continue with a formal public consultation under Regulation 14 taking place in the coming weeks.
More information about this will follow.

We undertook a Benchmarking review of the town centre last year - thank you to everyone who took the time to complete it. You can read the final report here.
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.
