Salisbury’s Charter tradition continues

Monday, 04 March 2019

The annual service to celebrate the signing of the Salisbury Charter in 1227 took place in St. Thomas’s Church yesterday (3 March 2019). This service attended by the Mayor of the City, Councillor Mike Osment, and the City’s Councillors is a long standing tradition as the congregation of St. Thomas’s welcomed the local councillors to mark, this year, 792 years since the Charter was signed. “As the 797th Mayor of Salisbury I am delighted to be cementing this longstanding Charter tradition at St. Thomas’s Church. I feel it’s a positive time for Salisbury as we move forward with our sustainable recovery initiative.”

The Committee objected to the planning application, because it did not comply with Wiltshire Council’s (WC’s) Core Planning Policies 21, 22, 57 and 58, and because the WC Conservation Officer was critical of the application and recommended that it be objected to.
