The Royal Artillery Museum has held a series of consultation sessions in the local area since Avon Camp West was identified as a potential site for the new museum.
Following confirmation (in 2019) by the Chief of the General Staff that the land would be made available to the Regiment, and confirmation of the site boundaries in November, further drop-in meetings and briefings were held in the villages of Netheravon and Figheldean in December 2019 and January 2020. These resulted in numerous helpful suggestions being fed into the project team, a number of which have led to adjustments in the detailed plans for the site.
Most recently, a Community Liaison Group has been established to facilitate communication, share information and engage in constructive discussions about the design, construction and operational aspects of the museum project. The group’s terms of reference and meeting minutes are available through local parish councils.
Once the planning application has been submitted we will be available to brief parish and town councils and answer any questions they have on the detailed plans.
Extensive consultation across the Regiment has confirmed the aspiration to have a new financially-sustainable home for the RA collection close to Larkhill. The design and content of the exhibitions are being developed in discussion with a wide range of Regimental interest groups and stakeholders.
