Finance and Governance Meeting - Monday 8 April 2019

Wednesday, 10 April 2019

On Monday 8 April, Salisbury City Council approved the application for a grant to be given to Salisbury Cathedral to support its Salisbury 2020: A City on the Move project which celebrates the 800th anniversary of the laying of the Cathedral Foundation Stone, and the development and growth of the City of Salisbury alongside the Cathedral. Salisbury Cathedral is planning a calendar of celebrations, in partnership with organisations across the city, to commemorate this momentous date and Salisbury City Council are delighted to lend its support to enable these activities. “800 years after its conception Salisbury Cathedral remains an iconic part of our City servicing both residents and vast numbers of visitors every year. It’s vital that we support this historic building that is such a pinnacle in our society” said Cllr Liz Sirman in support of the application.

Charter Market closure on Saturday 29 June 2019

Tuesday, 09 April 2019

Salisbury City Council has taken the decision to close the Charter Market on Saturday 29 June 2019. Salisbury is the proud host of this year’s National Armed Forces Day celebration and a military parade is planned for the city centre which will pass close to the Market Square. Working closely with Wiltshire Council to support this momentous occasion, it became clear that the combination of road closures, logistics of the event and the scale of the security surrounding the parade would mean that the Charter Market could not be held. Traders would be unable to enter the city to set up their stalls and the security measures required would prohibit normal trading.
