The question of prioritising the allocation of homes in Marlborough to people with family connections to Marlborough was raised at the recent meeting of the Full Town Council.
One councillor recalled that on leaving the armed forces her son had not been able to find a home in Marlborough and had had to move to Plymouth.
The issue was raised by Councillor Lisa Farrell and it coincides with a consultation that Wiltshire Council is holding on the allocation of social houses. This follows the Council's review of its housing allocation policy.
The online consultation is open here until 30 April 2017.
