Maltings plans to go on show

First published in News by

THE public will shortly be able to get their first glimpse of the multi-million pound proposals for the redevelopment of The Maltings and Central Car Park in Salisbury.

The developer, Stanhope, has announced it will be displaying its initial plans for the site at a public exhibition to be held at Salisbury Guildhall early next month.

Stanhope director Gary Bourne said “This represents the culmination of an initial period of stakeholder and political consultation and we are delighted to offer members of the public the chance to view and offer feedback on our evolving plans.

“We have thought deeply about Salisbury’s historic value, and a development on The Maltings and Central Car Park site will support and enhance the overall city experience.”

The developer says the draft plans will include:

• High quality new shops for Salisbury

• Restaurants and leisure opportunities

• New and improved public spaces

• Enhanced connections to the Market Place and historic Salisbury.

• Well lit, generously spaced car parking.

Stanhope was selected by Wiltshire Council in May 2012 as the preferred developer for the scheme following a competitive tender process.

The exhibition will take place over two days at Salisbury Guildhall on Sunday, December 9 from 11am to 4pm and on Tuesday, December 11 from 10am to 6.30pm.

A second exhibition is planned for next year in advance of submission of an outline planning application anticipated for later in 2013, with work expected to start the following year.

Well, let's give it a try then. I have one or two reservations about it but hey, who are we to argue with the 'experts'
Of course when I point out the obvious 'issues' at their feedback session will it make a difference? Mmmmm let's see....
Translations:
'competitive tender process' so when points are raised and addressed the price remains the same?
'high quality shops' we're trying to retain the ones we already have!
'Restaurants and leisure opportunities'
Junk food and booze?
'New and improved public spaces' just like the old Maltings?
'Well lit, generously spaced car parking.'
Well lit, generously spaced empty car park?
