Plans for revamp of information centre progress
PLANS for a £60,000 refurbishment of Salisbury’s information centre are progressing, with work expected to start early next year.
Salisbury City Council took over responsibility for the centre, in Fish Row, in April last year and is planning a £60,000 upgrade, including a full rebrand to link it more closely with the city council brand, as well as enabling customers to access the information centre from the Guildhall foyer and an improved IT infrastructure.
The council has selected Roger Bannister Designs to undertake the design work and some project management elements of the project and the current design includes an oak floor to imitate the formal rooms of the Guildhall, colours to suit the building and an accessible layout to house four members of staff at a time.
It will now invite builders and shop-fitting companies to tender for the work, with the centre expected to close for work to be carried out for four to six weeks in January and February.
The council’s officers are looking into the possibility of temporarily relocating the service to a nearby property while the work is done and when it re-opens it will offer accommodation bookings across the city and a ‘Made in Salisbury’ brand in the shop with an emphasis on local products.
