Open Meeting and AGM Marcham School
Wednesday 30th September at 7:30 pm

An open meeting open to all residents of Marcham to discuss community facilities and proposals will be held at Marcham School, on Thursday 30th September 2015, starting at 7:30 pm. This will include a presentation on the latest stage of the proposals to build new community facilities, which continue to evolve through the CFSG, and proposed management arrangements for the new facilities. The meeting will also provide an opportunity to ask questions about the proposals before a formal planning application is submitted.

Anson Trust plans

You may be aware (for those of you who were at a meeting in All Saints' Church in Marcham on Saturday 13th June) that the Anson Trust is working with Thomas Homes, a locally-based specialist developer on new community facility proposals. The concept described at that meeting received generally positive support from those present.

Plan preparation is moving rapidly, and our most recent CFSG meeting on Wednesday 1st July, we heard from Anson Trust that they are aiming to have detailed plans drawn up by a deadline of 29th July (the date of the next CFSG meeting), so as to be able to prepare for a formal planning application to be submitted on their timetable of September.
