Residents and businesses in Salisbury have been invited to the launch of a Neighbourhood Development Plan in The Guildhall, on Wednesday, February 27, from 6.30pm until 8.30pm. Light refreshments are available.
Salisbury City Council started preparaing its Neighbourhood Plan about a year ago.
The plan was put on hold because of the Novichok incident which took place in March. Now, the Council is starting fresh and has already put in place new arrangements, according to a statement issued today, February 7.
“Neighbourhood Plans are prepared by the community to direct how future development will occur. In Salisbury’s case, it will become a very important tool to help determine what the City will be like in the future and will reflect the needs and wishes of the Salisbury community.
“Salisbury City Council is working alongside Wiltshire Council on the recovery strategy for Salisbury to get the City back on its feet economically and will focus on the town centre. The Neighbourhood Plan will look at the City as a whole,” the statement added.
The event will brief local people and businesses on how the councils plan to undertake and develop the two-year project and to invite community participation with the steering group to oversee the process.
