Welcome to the Marlborough Area
Neighbourhood Plan (MANP) website


As the Neighbourhood Plan process has entered a rapidly changing period following the recent informal public consultation exercise it's been decided to merge the MANP Website with the Marlborough Town Council one to manage & present a coherent message from one source.

This website will no longer be updated and will CLOSE on 17 February 2020.

Please go to the new site and update any bookmarks you may have saved.  You can find the new pages at https://www.marlborough-tc.gov.uk/neighbourhood-plan 

What is important is that it will be your plan for your community. Your involvement in the future consultations over the next 12 months, up to & including a referendum on the Plan itself, is important so that your views can be taken into account. It’s the only way that we, as a local community, can have a meaningful 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!
