Tisbury Shadow Community Operations Board
The Tisbury shadow Community Operations Board (COB) has been formed by the area board to represent the community throughout the development of the proposals for a community campus for Tisbury. The shadow COB consists of an area board member, a parish council representative and members of various community groups to make sure it can represent the local community area effectively.
An update on the progress of the shadow COB will be given at each area board meeting and you can read then notes of their most recent meetings below. For minutes from previous meetings please email CampusConsultation@wiltshire.gov.uk or telephone 01225 718350.

A community campus for Tisbury - progress update
Architects for the Tisbury Campus have been appointed and they will be working closely with the shadow COB to design the campus. The COB will be setting up working groups to cover key parts of the design such as leisure, community spaces, transport and access.
At the beginning of 2013 the shadow COB members produced a Tisbury campus newsletter 4.3mb Tisbury 'Campus Calling' newsletter - winter 2012/13 which they distributed to households across the community area. They have also developed a comprehensive list of responses to Frequently Asked Questions on the Tisbury Campus Frequently Asked Questions on the Tisbury Campus 215kb
If you are interested in joining one of the working groups or would like to discuss anything about the Tisbury campus project please contact Wiltshire Council on 01225 718350 or email email@example.com.
Learning and Skills Centre
The learning and skills centre at the Tisbury Campus is a core part of the COB's design brief and was strongly supported by the community through both phases of consultation.
The brief of the skills centre will be to make people’s lives better through education, training, life and leisure skills and personal growth, to include all ages. This will benefit the community’s desire to encourage and retain young people in the area, to promote new work opportunities and to extend support to the large and often overlooked, older population. It will address the vacuum in the provision of help for unqualified school leavers and that of insufficient informal adult education in the area.
Tisbury Campus consultation phase 2
Based on the questionnaire returns from the first round of consultation the Shadow Community Operations Board drew up a list of key services and facilities requested which the board proposed should be located on the Nadder School site in Tisbury: These include:
- Leisure centre, including swimming provision
- Learning and Skills centre based in a new and much enhanced library for the community
- Internet cafe with high speed broadband
- Provision for adult social care including specialist medical facilities, chiropodist, optician etc.
- Provision for young people.
A further survey was carried out as part of the second phase of consultation and gave residents the chance to comment on these conclusions and to clarify certain aspects of what the local people of the Tisbury community area want and need in a campus.
The South West Wiltshire Area Board supported the campus proposal put forward by the Tisbury Shadow COB at the 7 December 2011 Area Board meeting. You can read the minutes and supporting documents below.

Tisbury Campus consultation
The Tisbury & Parishes Community Area Partnership (TAPCAP) was asked by the South West Wiltshire Area Board and the Tisbury Shadow Community Operations Board to consult with local residents on the proposal for a community campus for the Tisbury area. Postal surveys were sent to all households within the Tisbury community area and some additional neighbouring parishes, in order to seek the views of local residents on a community campus for Tisbury.
This initial phase of consultation closed on the 29 July 2011 and the results were used to develop an outline proposal for a Tisbury campus, presented to the South West Wiltshire Area Board on 24 August 2011.
