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. Watch it here: http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/news/articles/canvasscampaign
