After a decade of broken promises, poor old Melksham has had its campus delayed yet again.

The inadequacy of the council's finances mean it's been kicked another year into the future, with no certainty that anything further will ever happen.

Cllr Ian Blair-Pilling, Cabinet Member for Leisure, said: "We're obviously disappointed that we can't proceed as originally planned, particularly after the fantastic progress the project has made in the last year.

"However, the most important thing is that this revised timeline will help ensure we can still provide the campus and that's something we are fully committed to doing.

"We know what a positive impact the campus will have on the health and wellbeing of people as well as the local economy, and we're determined to see our long-held vision come to fruition.

"While we understand there will be some disappointment from Melksham communities, these are unprecedented times and as a council we have to adapt to help ensure those who need it most are getting the help and support they need."
