Changes to free parking in Salisbury
Parking in Salisbury will no longer be free all day, after complaints from business owners that commuters were taking spaces meant for shoppers and tourists.
Wiltshire Council had suspended charges in all its car parks in the city centre in a bid to boost trade after the nerve agent attack on Sergei and Yulia Skripal in March saw a drop in visitors to Salisbury.
But from Monday 14th May parking in Wiltshire Council car parks will no longer be free all day.
Instead, it will be free from midday on Monday to Friday and all day at weekends.
All five park and ride bus stations also remain free.
But the multi-storey car park in the Old George Mall will have its normal car parking charges re-instated from Monday.
Wiltshire Council are currently taking democracy to the doorstep in a county-wide campaign to sign up voters. Staff are visiting the homes of around 11,000 people who are eligible to vote but aren't registered, and inviting them to get their names on the electoral roll.
Carlton Brand, Wiltshire Council corporate director and the county's returning officer, said: "Voting in elections is the lifeblood of our free society. "We want every citizen in the county to have the best possible chance to have their say and to cast a vote "It takes less than five minutes to sign up, but it means so much. Voting is a priceless right which everyone should cherish."
The Canvassing is now underway until 4 June when council staff all bearing official ID - will call at the homes of residents who are eligible but unregistered to vote. The canvassers will have tablet devices with them so people can register right there on the doorstep. All they need is their national insurance number. Residents can also register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or by phone on 0300 456 0112. Wiltshire's returning officer, Carlton Brand, explains in a short video what people can expect and why we're doing this now.

Our Parish Plan outlined the need for the following action:
"The Parish Council will continue to secure representation from the four              communities and will seek further ways to improve its association with them for example by rotating  the venue of Parish meetings."

Future Parish Council meetings will be held at Old Sarum         Community Centre, Hampton Park (Greentrees School) and Laverstock  at River Bourne Community Farm on a rolling programmed basis.
The next Parish Council  meeting will be held on Monday 18th June at Old Sarum Community Centre 7pm
Residents are welome to attend.
Residents can address the council with any concerns for up to 3  minutes before the meeting proper starts.
Details of meetings and agenda are to be found on our

Planning Applications

The PC is providing a table which lists the Planning Applications that have been referred to the Parish Council for their opinion. Applications are generally considered by a team of three
Councillors, but may occasionally be referred to the whole Council. Full details may be viewed on the Wiltshire Council website.
The RESPONSE is the view of the Parish Council and will be considered, along with other consultations, by Wiltshire Council, who will make the decision.


Area Boards

Giving power back to the people
What is an Area Board?

The Area Boards are a new way of working to bring local decision making back into the heart of the community. They are a formal part of Wiltshire Council that try to find solutions for local issues such as road repairs, traffic problems and speeding in villages, litter, facilities for young people and affordable housing.

People who work with the 18 Area Boards include councillors, community area managers, democratic service officers together with one member of the council’s top decision making committee, the cabinet. It also includes the local NHS, fire and emergency services, police, town and parish councils, community area partnerships and many other groups.

By working in partnership with local communities, the council can achieve so much more than it ever could on its own. We hope this will lead to better services, better communities and a better quality of life for everyone in Wiltshire.
