A proposed campus for Westbury will move a step closer this month, with the launch of a consultation at the town’s Christmas lights switch-on event.

The consultation, which starts on November 24, seeks residents’ views on what form a community campus should take and what services should be offered.

Existing services – including the swimming pool and leisure centre, library and youth centre – could be included in the campus, which might also use existing buildings and be spread over more than one site.

Mayor Sue Ezra, who sits on the community operations board (COB) which is overseeing the campus project, said: “It is important that we get as many responses to this questionnaire as possible.

“This is the first stage of consultation on the campus and it is a blank slate. We want to know everything that local people would like to see included.”

The consultation is in the form of a questionnaire, which will be available from a stall near the library during the switch-on event.

It can be picked up from the library, leisure centre, heritage centre and other public facilities.

The closing date for responses is the end of January.
