Salisbury’s bid to the government’s Future High Streets fund and the Salisbury brand positioning project are other topics.
The Central Area Framework document has been in preparation throughout the year and should be nearing completion by the time of the meeting. It seeks to identify the distinctive characteristics of the various parts of central Salisbury, and ways in which these can be built on to enhance the city. The Civic Society has a particular interest in ways of achieving pedestrian-friendly streets.
A River Park is said to be one of the most important proposals emerging from the Framework, building on a similar but geographically more restricted concept at the heart of the now-adopted Maltings masterplan.
It envisages making much more of Salisbury’s rivers, from the Avon valley to the north, down to the Harnham water meadows.
