The Town Council, after months of discussion about its future as a partner with the Cricklade Campus, has made a decision about its future location. It has decided that because the costs of relocating to the High Street Police Station location are unknown, that it would prefer to remain at Ockwells. It has asked Wiltshire Council to consider an asset transfer of the whole of the Ockwells site (to include the library and GP surgery) into its ownership to ensure that the Council remains in Ockwells and as an integral part of the community. The Council is now waiting for a decision from Wiltshire Council.
