Wiltshire Council is exploring the options available to improve the A350 at Melksham including the potential for a new bypass around Melksham, and are seeking the views of residents, businesses and other stakeholders on progress so far, and the various route options.

You can find information about the proposals – including the route options – on Wiltshire Council’s page here including a number of downloadable documents and FAQs. At this stage, WC are seeking feedback on the early stages of the scheme – this is not a statutory consultation. If the scheme progresses, statutory consultation will follow later in 2021. It is also important to note that all route options are indicative and do not show the exact route that any road may take. If and when a preferred option is decided upon, the specifics of the route would be subject to full statutory consultation. 

This consultation closes on Sunday 17th January at 23:59. It’s worth taking a look at the proposals as some of the options – 10d in particular – affect our Parish more than others.



In addition to the information on Wiltshire Council’s page, here are some further links you may find helpful:

Note – any references to the consultation period ending 30th November 2020 were superseded when it was extended to 17th January 2021.

We will keep adding to this page as further information or links become available.
