New Community Campus for Wootton Bassett and Cricklade

On 23rd March we will be meeting to look at the proposed approach to the county-wide delivery of community campus buildings and their future management.A campus will be a building, or collection of buildings, in a community area that provides all the services communities need in easy to access locations. This includes services delivered by the council, and potentially its partners, other public service providers and services provided by the voluntary and community sector.

 The cabinet report proposes a preliminary management project is set up in Wootton Bassett to see how community management could work.It is hoped these will be in place from April 2011 and will initially run for two years. The results of the pilot would be used to assist the council in deciding whether to develop a form of not-for-profit community led organisation that would help deliver a variety of community services within each campus.

This model would create an opportunity where local people can directly influence the delivery and improvement of services they choose for their community, in line with policy from central government through the Localism Bill. The design and services on offer of each building will directly reflect the needs of the area it serves, so they will take different forms and will be driven by different factors - Are You interested in getting involved?

Come along to your Area Board at Lyneham Primary School on 23rd March 6.30 for refreshments - you will be most welcome.
