Campus initiative

The proposed Westbury Campus aims to make it easier for local people to access a range of facilities by making better use of three key buildings in Westbury – the library, the swimming pool and the Leighton Recreation Centre.

The campus project is being developed jointly by the local community, Wiltshire Council and its partners.

A key part of this is the Westbury Community Operations Board (COB) which is made up of local people and seeks to ensure the campus reflects the needs and aspirations of the local community.

The current members of the COB are

  • Brenda Pyne (chairman and user and communities representative)
  • David Jenkins (area board representative)
  • Sue Ezra (town council representative)
  • Alison Irving (user and communities representative)
  • Tumpale Phiri-Thorne (wider communities representative)
  • Bill Jarvis (user and communities representative)
  • Neil Walker (user and communities representative)

They are currently engaging with services and organisations to enable them to develop a working proposal for the campus that will presented to a future meeting of the Westbury Area Board.

There has already been extensive consultation about what services are important and where the campus should be located. The last round of consultation undertaken in late 2013 overwhelming supported the development of the campus the proposed three locations. This approach was endorsed by the Westbury Area Board in February. You can read the answers to questions frequently asked about the campus.
