Community Governance Review- 14 Dec 21 - Malmesbury & St Paul Malmesbury Without

A Community Governance Review is a process to provide opportunity to review and make changes to governance arrangements for town and parish councils and parish areas. This is to ensure that they continue to be reflective of the identity and interest of local communities, and that they are as efficient and effective in their governance as can be.

Please click on the link below for information on Malmesbury and St Paul Malmesbury Without Survey and a invitation to attend an on-line meeting on Tuesday 14th December at 6.00pm.

The meeting will be convened by the Chair of the Electoral Review Committee, Cllr Ian Blair Pilling. He will explain that this meeting is part of the first stage of information gathering as to the residents views of the two propositions put forward by MTC and St Paul's Without.

He will take each proposition in turn asking for views. It will be very important that colleagues and residents speak up.

Residents are urged to remember that the two central issues are:

"community identity" ie do residents in the areas around Malmesbury feel part of the Town or parish?

"good governance" ie will the proposals make for better or worse governance in years of representation and decision making for residents?





Local stories in and around the Malmesbury area to keep you up-to-date.


A wonderful place to visit with a wealth of attractions right on the doorstep.


Malmesbury is a beautiful town to visit in its own right and attractions include the jewel in our crown being Malmesbury Abbey, the fabulous Abbey House Gardens, and Malmesbury’s 15th century Market Cross.

For more than two and a half millennia successive generations have populated this hilltop, which forms the centre of the community we now call Malmesbury.
