A revised planning application for a new hotel, interim library, gym and café on the site of the former British Heart Foundation store at 30-36 Fisherton Street, Salisbury has been received by Wiltshire Council.
This proposed phase one of the wider vision for the Maltings and Central Car Park regeneration project, was in the recently endorsed Masterplan.
A previous application was in June on design grounds. The committee ruled the bulk and design of the proposal did not reflect the characteristics of Fisherton Street and Salisbury in general.
The resubmitted design retains the original proposal for an 86-room hotel, gym, and new library but outline removal of one floor. The proposed building would be under 40ft except for two lift shafts, use a wider range of materials; adds a two-storey civic-style atrium to the library entrance, towards the Playhouse and City Hall, and a café space and public plaza to the Fisherton Street frontage. The building is put back to give a greater view of the United Reformed Church; with a sedum brown roof to provide habitat within the urban environment.
