Wiltshire Council and the Environment Agency are working in partnership on the Salisbury River Park project which will alleviate flood risk and deliver environmental and public realm improvements in central Salisbury, including walking and cycling links.
The consultation is in two parts:
Part 1 – Salisbury River Park Masterplan led by Wiltshire Council
This sets the guiding principles for the development of the whole of the River Park, to be delivered over a number of phases.
The vision for the River Park is a lasting legacy of riverside green space and urban wildlife habitat for the people of Salisbury and its visitors to enjoy well into the future. The River Park area will better connect the linear riverside route from the Ashley Road Open Space towards Elizabeth Gardens, north to south through the centre of Salisbury along the margins of the River Avon. It will enhance the setting and quality of the river while delivering essential flood risk mitigation to protect existing and future residents and businesses, building resilience to the effects of climate change.
Part 2 – Detailed plans for Phase 1 of the Salisbury River Park (Central Car Park, Ashley Road Open Space and Fisherton Recreation Ground)
These proposals will provide critical flood risk alleviation infrastructure and environmental improvements in Salisbury’s central car park, Ashley Road Open Space and Fisherton Recreation Ground. This part of the project is being led by the Environment Agency, with support from Wiltshire Council and Salisbury City Council. The Phase 1 project is to be part-funded by the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership (SWLEP) via the Local Growth Fund.
