Welcome to Marlborough Town Council's website. It’s designed to provide easy to access information about how the Town Council works, our services, projects and activities, local events and links to other websites. There are pages where you can find contact details for your Town Councillors, agendas and minutes for Council and Committee Meetings, details about how to book the Town Hall as well as a little about Marlborough’s history. Take a look around. We are continually looking at making improvements so, please let us have your suggestions for other information you would like to see here.
At the Area Board meeting on Tuesday, 27th January, Unitary Councillors voted through their agreement that Marlborough Town Council takes over the freehold of Cooper's Meadow close to the centre of town. This has been possible because of the Community Asset Transfer scheme run by Wiltshire Council. This will enable the Town Council to work more closely with local community groups free from restrictions set out under its previous lease. It has already been agreed that grazing, clearly popular with many local people, can go ahead in the spring.
Our Town Mayor, Cllr Marian Hannaford said: "I am delighted that Wiltshire Council has agreed that the Town Council can take on this land for the town and we are looking forward to working alongside our community groups to make sure that Cooper's Meadow remains a fabulous asset and amenity for Marlborough. We have a draft Management Plan drawn together by our Grounds and Estates Manager and will soon be setting up meetings to learn about how our residents would like to see this land used."

Marlborough - Benchmarking Report
The Town Council recently commissioned a benchmarking exercise for Marlborough with People & Places. This positive report highlights low vacancy rates of retail outlets, high footfall and high customer spend. There’s room for improvement on car parking, a lack of affordable shops and high business rates and property rental values. Read more 1.04 MB
