Visitors to city faced with rubbish
12:24pm Wednesday 11th December 2013 in Letters
FOR the past 38 years I have run various businesses in Fisherton Street. During this time I have seen this part of Salisbury blossom from a rather shabby street into an attractive and vibrant shopping centre full of interesting shops.
Behind Fisherton Street, Malthouse Lane is a service road that includes entrances to the City Hall and Salisbury Playhouse.
These two venues attract visitors from all over south Wiltshire and much further afield to see great entertainment.
Visitors to these show places are currently faced with an assortment of piles of rubbish; some fly-tipped and some contained within large wheelie bins adjacent to the City Hall and Playhouse.
The situation has worsened since Wiltshire Council increased charges to remove commercial waste 18 months ago. Commercial waste is undoubtedly a problem but the council has a responsibility to clean up such areas in Salisbury which are offensive to the eye and do nothing to maintain Salisbury’s attraction as a world class tourist venue.
