AN APPLICATION has been submitted for proposed developments at Ashley Road Open Space and Fisherton Recreation Ground, and land at The Maltings and Central Car Park.

The joint project, between Wiltshire Council and the Environment Agency, aims to "help reduce the risk of flooding for existing residents and businesses in Salisbury city centre, build climate change resilience, enhance existing and create new spaces for biodiversity and improve public enjoyment of the river".

The council say it will also enable the delivery of its wider regeneration goals for the Maltings and Central Car Park site and protect future development in the city centre - some of which have been put on hold.

The application is being made by the Environment Agency for planning permission for Phase 1 of the Salisbury River Park project to install flood defences, wildlife and amenity improvements and associated works.
