Time running out to have your say on shaping Salisbury's future
Are you a Salisbury resident or a local business?
There's just over a week left to have your say on two important projects in Salisbury.
The first project is the final phase of public consultation on the Salisbury Central Area Framework (CAF), which will help shape the future of the city centre. This has been amended to reflect the comments received from the public consultation held last summer and Wiltshire Council now wants to hear further feedback on the draft CAF.
The final CAF will be adopted by the council later this year. The CAF recommendations guide future developments and initiatives in the city centre to make it a more vibrant, attractive and sustainable place.
The second project is a joint initiative with the Environment Agency to improve the watercourses in central Salisbury. This will help reduce flood risk to residents and businesses, build climate change resilience, enhance existing and creating new spaces for biodiversity and improve public enjoyment of the river.
The consultation closes at 5pm on Friday 28 February.
Local people can complete the survey online at www.wiltshire.gov.uk/salisbury-future, by emailing the survey to firstname.lastname@example.org or posting to Future Salisbury, Wiltshire Council, The Council House, Bourne Hill, Salisbury SP1 3UZ.
Cllr Philip Whitehead, Leader of Wiltshire Council, said:
I've been really pleased with the amount of responses we've had so far. The two public exhibitions were well attended and I've really enjoyed reading the views of local residents & businesses. If you were unable to attend, or haven't yet had your say, please complete the survey, as the feedback we receive is vital. Your views are crucial in shaping the future of Salisbury.
