Salisbury Clean Streets

The City Council’s Strategic Plan states improving public spaces is key if we are to maintain Salisbury as a fantastic place to live, work and visit.

Salisbury should be a beautiful and well looked after city. Today, with a growing population and more and more disposable goods, keeping the city looking good is getting more challenging.

There is no doubt that dirty streets is a problem. The City Council aims to improve the upkeep of public spaces across Salisbury. As a result, the City Council will invest over £1.25 million per year in the coming years to keep the city and parks/open spaces looking good.

The Council wants to improve cleaning standards in the city centre in the first instance and then improve standards elsewhere. The principles of our new street scheme strategy is to:

• Invest in resources to improve overall standards
• Organise the service as efficiently and effectively as possible
• Target staff resources at the times of highest demand
• Mechanise where possible to improve productivity and standards
• Change public behaviours to reduce demand particularly in hotspot areas
• Engage and empower communities
• Measure and publish information about our performance

Salisbury City Council will continue to work hard to maintain high quality public spaces in the city but we cannot do it alone. Our businesses, local organisations, communities and individuals all have a part to play and it is only by working together that we will achieve the changes and improvements that everyone wants to see.
