Chance to create country park in city
TWO councils could join forces to create a nature reserve or country park for the people of Salisbury.
The council already owns a small area linked to the nearby Ridings Mead estate, and a neighbouring piece of land is owned by Wiltshire Council, which could present an opportunity for the councils to work together to create a country park style public space.
City clerk Reg Williams said they had made initial inquiries with Wiltshire Council and they were keen to meet up quickly and discuss joint working. “This is potentially a very exciting project in the making,” he said.
The committee voted in favour of speaking to the landowner with regard to acquiring the land.
