Welcome to the Marlborough Area
Neighbourhood Plan (MANP) website

This will give you, our community, the chance to be involved in the production of the MANP, including signing up to receive regular updates and newsletters. You will also be able to take part in mini polls, keep abreast of surveys being undertaken in your parishes and let us have us your views. 

This site will also let you know about workshops, events and consultations too. We’d like all those living in our Neighbourhood Plan area – Marlborough, Mildenhall, Preshute and Savernake – to sign up to the site so we can keep you all fully up to date. As the Plan progresses, the website will offer more content as findings are built up based on the surveys, polls and consultation results and professional data. Please keep logging in to keep abreast of new information and updates.

This Plan is made by the community for the community so, do get involved and make your views known. It’s the only way that we, as a local community, has real influence on the future shape of our area.

July 2019 - Informal Consultation

We're getting closer to putting our Neighbourhood Plan in place.  We held drop-in sessons to speak to members of the Steering Group, ask questions, and give your views at

Manton Village Hall - Wed 17 July - 6pm-8pm
Marlborough Town Hall - Sat 20 July - 10am-3pm
Marlborough Area Board (Town Hall) - Tue 23 July - 6pm-7pm
Mildenhall Village Hall - Wed 24 July - 6pm-8pm

And also invited you to to give us your views in an online survey.

The results are out!

Your feedback about affordable housing, potential development sites, important green spaces and community facilities in Marlborough and Manton, Mildenhall, Preshute and Savernake has been collated and set out in a report which can be viewed here.  This will all be taken into consideration now that the Plan is being drafted ready for the official consultation early in the new year.  Many thanks to everyone who took part.

Town Centre Survey

We undertook a Benchmarking review of the town centre last year - thank you to everyone who took the time to complete it. You can read the final report here

Benchmarking has been conducted in over 350 locations and measures performance against key indicators such as retail offer, footfall, shoppers origin, business performance and car parking. The results are used for developing regeneration projects, attracting funding, measuring the impact of events and festivals, creating town centre partnerships, planning projects and inward investment - in this case part of the overall evidence gathering to help us complete our Neighbourhood Plan.


Call for sites

We have listened to local people in Marlborough and Manton, Mildenhall, Preshute and Savernake and know what their land requirements are. Do you own or know of land which is potentially suitable for development for:

  • affordable housing
  • additional car parking
  • formal sports and recreational facilities
  • a new medical centre
  • a new cemetery

If so we want to hear from you!
