MELKSHAM CAMPUS PLANNING APPLICATION SUBMITTED
21 February 2014
Following a recent county-wide public consultation, DKA has submitted planning and listed building consent applications for the new Melksham Campus (ref 14/00726/FUL).
The Campus will house a wide variety of sports facilities, including a six lane 25m swimming pool with spectator seating, a secondary pool, a four badminton court sports hall, six rink indoor bowls hall and climbing wall, as well as a fitness suite and dance studio.
The project includes a library, flexible office space and healthcare provision together with the refurbishment of the existing historic Melksham House and adjacent Edwardian bathing pool. All facilities will be accessed through a single main entrance and linked by a light and airy glazed concourse.
Melksham Campus is part of Wiltshire Council’s community campus programme which is in the process of delivering over a dozen such projects across the county. Community campuses are developed with input from local people to ensure each one is as individual as the community it serves.
