Work due to take place at Brown Street Car Park, Salisbury

Some safety work will be carried out from 25 July

Published 18 July 2022

Wiltshire Council will be starting safety work to the main footpath at Brown Street Car Park in Salisbury, and some nearby trees, from next week (25 July).

The work is expected to last for five working days. During this time, a temporary footpath will be set up adjacent to the existing one to allow people to cross the car park. Clear signage will be visible in the area.

This is part of  the council's planned maintenance programme and will help reduce trip hazards on the footpath caused by five trees in the area. Work will be carried out on the base of the trees that will not only make the footpath safer, but also help protect the tree roots for the longer-term.

Cllr Ian Blair-Pilling, Cabinet Member for Operational Assets, said:

"This is a well-used car park and footpath so this work, which forms part of our maintenance programme, will make the area safer and also help protect the roots of the trees.

"We will ensure to keep disruption to the public to a minimum."

One of Wiltshire Council's missions within its Business Plan is that Wiltshire is a safe place. More information about the plan can be found at
