Upgrade to Milbourne Water Treatment Centre commencing 28.5.24


May 2024

Wessex Water is upgrading Milbourne Water Treatment Centre to improve reliability of the water supply to customers. This work will involve installing a new booster pump station to ensure supply to all customers in the event of an unplanned issue at the treatment centre.

Work will start on Tuesday 28 May 2024 for approximately four months and the upgrade will take place without interruption to local water supplies.

All the work will take place within the existing site which is near Monks Park. Some work may be visible during construction and there will be additional traffic using the access track to the site.

There may be some noise disruption while this work is carried out, but every effort will be made to keep this to a minimum.

Water supply services can be used as normal unless advised otherwise.

Wessex Water will shortly be writing to local customers to advise them about this work and a copy of the letter can be accessed on the link below.

Community Area Joint Strategic Needs Assessment


April 2024

Please scan the link to complete an online survey being run by Wiltshire Council.  The aim is to gather information about what local people feel are the important themes and priorities for their area. The short survey asks people to choose their key themes and then, for their top three, tell us further detail about those issues. It shouldn’t take any longer than 10mins to complete.

The responses will help to inform Wiltshire Council’s planning for the coming years and also help to shape Malmesbury Area Board’s priorities for the coming year. They really want to hear about the issues that are important to local people so they can channel resources into making changes where they’re wanted.

Milbourne dedicates defibrillator to former resident


November 2023

Milbourne, in St. Paul Malmesbury Without, is the latest local parish council to receive a life-saving defibrillator from the Malmesbury League of Friends (MLOF).

The defibrillator is installed in an old telephone box in Milbourne Lane and has been dedicated to former local resident Phil Rice, who sadly passed away last year. He had been a MLOF trustee and was very active in the local community.

21 local parish councils have already received funding from MLOF to install defibrillators in their villages and others are still considering the offer from MLOF for funding towards their installation.

Automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) have been described as the single most important development in the treatment of sudden cardiac arrest. Designed for use by untrained lay persons, they have improved the outcomes of literally thousands of people who have suffered from cardiac arrests.

MLOF chairman David Hide said: “We are delighted to have worked with another local parish council to enable it to have access to this potentially life-saving equipment.”

St Paul Malmesbury Without Parish Council Chairman Roger Budgen said: “We are very grateful to MLOF and to be able to dedicate the defibrillator to Phil Rice, a wonderful local resident who did so much for Malmesbury and District”.
