Mr Bob Woodward, Mrs Carol Grant, Cllr Christine Crisp, Kevin Wells, Mrs Ruth Szybiak, Cllr Doyle, Cllr Jerry Kunkler, Cllr Tony Deane Cllr Bridget Wayman and representatives from Calne Leisure as well as other local members also addressed Cabinet on the campus proposals for their respective areas.


Cllr Stuart Wheeler, Cabinet member for Transformation, Leisure and Culture, reminded the meeting of the Leader’s commitment to bring services closer to the people and ensure that communities had the assets they needed to plan for a sustainable and resilient future. The campus programme when introduced, was a pilot; now it was the way the council worked and the way in which other councils were hoping to work.


Cllr Wheeler presented a report detailing the second tranche of campus proposals. The report set out four business cases associated with campus proposals for the communities of Calne, Cricklade, Pewsey and Tisbury, along with the request for funds to deliver an enhanced youth provision in Malmesbury as an initial building block for a future Malmesbury campus.


The specifications and locations of the campus proposals set out in the report had been developed locally and were supported by the Area Boards for Cabinet consideration.


The purpose of the report was therefore the consideration of options that had primarily been developed at a local level. The campus proposals as presented asked Cabinet to consider two key areas. Namely, Cabinet was asked to approve the funds to deliver the baseline proposals that were deliverable within the existing business plan and meet ‘essential’ needs as identified by the community. Secondly Cabinet was asked to consider whether they wished to approve any, or all, of the enhanced proposals that would require additional investment, but would deliver the aspirational needs identified by the community. 


In moving the proposals, Cllr Wheeler supported the provision of enhanced facilities in order to deliver for the benefit of the entire communities.


The Deputy Leader referred to the notes as previously circulated, of the Campus and Operational Delivery Task Group meeting held on 11 October which had considered the campus reports. Cllr Jonathon Seed who had chaired the Task Group was invited to present the Task Group’s findings. Cllr Seed explained that the Task Group had received an open appraisal by the Cabinet member and relevant officers, was satisfied with the process that had been followed, including the make-up and method of calculating the financial figures for the proposed campus projects. Cllr Seed added that the Cabinet member and officers were to be congratulated for a job well done.
