Melksham Campus Development moves forward
27 November 2013
DKA has recently participated in a county-wide public consultation to hear peoples’ views on the proposed design for the new Melksham Campus Development. The new 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 the refurbishment of the existing historic Melksham House and adjacent Edwardian bathing pool, a library, flexible office space and some healthcare provision. 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 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. We will be submitting a planning application in early 2014.
