SALISBURY residents can have their say on the draft masterplan for the redevelopment of the Maltings and Central Car Park.

The consultation over the plans opened today (Monday, April 15) and will run until 5pm on Friday, May 24.

Wiltshire Council says all comments made during the consultation will be considered before a final version of the masterplan for The Maltings and Central Car Park is created and taken to its Spatial Planning Committee for consideration.

Pauline Church, Wiltshire Council's cabinet member for economic development and south Wiltshire recovery, said: “The Maltings and Central Car Park is an important space in the centre of Salisbury, and it’s vital that we involve the community in any future plans for development for the area.

“I would encourage anyone with an interest in Salisbury’s future as a shopping, leisure and tourism destination to attend the public exhibition at Salisbury’s Guildhall to find out more, and respond to the consultation on the draft masterplan.”

If endorsed, the masterplan will provide a clear framework for how the site will be redeveloped over the coming years.

A public exhibition will be held on Tuesday, April 23, from 9.30am to 6.45pm at Salisbury Guildhall, and council officers will be on hand to answer questions about the draft masterplan.
