Community Campuses – Royal Wootton Bassett and Calne

by admin | 5th December 2011

You may have heard that Wiltshire Council are proposing to develop Community campuses throughout Wiltshire.  Wiltshire Council define a campus as  “a building or buildings, in a community area where people can access services; it doesn’t have to be on one geographic site.” The campus might include: leisure facilities, adult social care, youth services, a library, a transport hub, a cafe, internet services and many other things either existing or newly created.  A campus could also include services from partners such as the Police, the Town Council, local voluntary sector organisations or medical facilities; these services could be provided in refurbished buildings, in extended existing buildings or by changing the use of existing buildings.


Invitation to the Royal Wootton Bassett community campus equalities workshop event  – 7th December 2011

Local service provision in Royal Wootton Bassett is changing.  The Shadow Campus Operations Board (COB) – on behalf of the local Area Board – want to develop an equalities action plan to ensure that the proposed community campus offers an accessible and welcoming environment.  The aim is to reduce /remove any factors such as physical access, programming of services and activities etc. that may be a barrier to people wishing to use campus facilities.


If you represent a group in the Royal Wootton Bassett community area with a specific interest in equalities issues, or have individual concerns about accessibility or inclusion, please share your views.


If you have any access needs please contact Rachel Goff on 01225 718677 or email
