The Salisbury Place Partnership is an unincorporated voluntary partnership that pulls together the public and private sectors. Partnership members operate in a non-executive capacity, taking into account individual organisations decision-making processes. Partner organisations will be asked to align their resources and activity with the activities proposed by the pillar leads, but this remains a decision for individual organisations.

The Salisbury Place Partnership’s overall strategic purpose is to deliver a step change in the economic vitality of the city centre. The Partnership is advisory with a commitment of members to work together to shape and influence Salisbury going forward. We recognise that the Partnership will not be able to mandate independent bodies or members but will work together to find consensus in the development of priorities.

The Salisbury Place Partnership focusses on the following objectives:

  • Managing the city centre to appeal to residents and visitors
  • Developing the cultural offer through an updated Cultural Strategy and a programme that supports the Traditional Original positioning and is distinctive to Salisbury.
  • Improving vibrancy within the city with the development of an offer that engages with the local community but also is strong enough to encourage regional and national visitors to the city centre
  • Developing the city to enhance its appeal and ease of access for residents and visitors, as well as respond to environmental issues

Here are some great examples of how this partnership working has bolstered and enhanced our city and its strategic planning…

Events & Festivals

There is no shortage of great content in Salisbury but we need to consider a more considered, curated, ‘less is more’ approach.

We want to develop original and relevant content for Salisbury that will bring new audiences into the city.

We want an events programme that reinforces the values of Salisbury – independence, care, creativity, ambition.

Salisbury Street Sellers and Taste Salisbury are two examples already demonstrating these values.

Now Salisbury needs to consider how it responds to re-localisation and net zero and lead the way by creating original events aligned with contemporary issues.

Retail & Hospitality

For over 800 years Salisbury has been a guiding light for all who value originality and our independent businesses continue this tradition today, giving residents and visitors an offering that can’t be found on any other high street.

That’s why every July is Independents Month in Salisbury. This gives us the opportunity to champion and celebrate our wonderful away of creative, original and resilient independent businesses.

Salisbury already has over 200 indies and we are keen to grow this There is an opportunity to work proactively with landlords and agents to develop an innovative approach to pop ups and new uses. This should be a curated approach to attract innovative makers and creators to the city.
