Supporting Salisbury and Amesbury communities

Salisbury Central Area Framework consultation

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback on what you'd like the city centre to look like in the future. The Salisbury Central Area Framework consultation closed on 9 August 2019 and a final version of the Framework will now be prepared taking into account all comments received. It is anticipated that the final Salisbury Central Area Framework will be published in autumn 2019.

Salisbury's park and ride sites

Shoppers and visitors can enjoy the unique shops and attractions that Salisbury has to offer by using one of the park and ride sites in the city.

Until Saturday 2 November 2019, all park and ride services will be half price (£1.50 return per person or £2 for a group of up to 4 people travelling together).

From Monday 4 November 2019 all park and ride services will revert to the usual price of £3 return per person or £4 per group, representing a saving on the cost of all-day parking in the city centre. 

With a convenient schedule and many park and ride services running from around 6am until after 11pm, Monday-Saturday, why not use the park and ride to enjoy the best of Salisbury.

The five park and ride sites are located at Wilton, Beehive, London Road, Petersfinger and Britford. Find out more.

In addition, parking continues to be free after 3pm every day at Salisbury's Culver Street Car Park, and all of Salisbury's car parks are free of charge to use every Sunday.

Litter picks and public health advice

Wiltshire Council is supporting communities to carry out organised litter picks in areas covered by Salisbury, Amesbury, Southern and South West Wiltshire Area Boards. Wiltshire Council is supporting community groups to carry out organised litter picking events in line with the Great British Spring Clean guidance. However, the 'if you didn't drop it, don't pick it up' advice from Public Health England remains in place for casual, non-organised litter picking. 

If a community group has an event arranged they are encouraged to contact their local Community Engagement Manager with details so that they can provide specialist litter picking equipment and advice to support the event.

Community groups who have an event booked can contact their Community Engagement Manager at to ensure their litter pick is supported. All litter picks will need a nominated person who will take responsibility for the event.
