Melksham Area Board
MELKSHAM AREA BOARD
The area boards are a way of working to bring local decision making back into the heart of the community. Area Boards are not like old fashioned council meetings and there are lots of opportunities for local people to get involved.
Meetings take place locally once every 8 weeks and between meetings task groups consisting of local people, Wiltshire Council staff and councillors tackle local issues and find solutions to take forward at the next area board.
A key role of the area boards is to provide grants to community groups and youth funding in partnership with the local youth networks. Local Community Engagement Managers (CEM's) facilitate and enable closer working between the council, the community and area boards.
Following the COVID lockdown last March 2020, the Area Board meetings have been undertaken on-line. Information on the meetings can be found on the link below.
Date of Next Meeting: 10th March 2021 (virtual meeting)
