Local people setting the agenda for the City

Over a hundred people came together at Five Rivers Health and Wellbeing  Centre last night to help shape the future of the City.

A brand new report on the issues affecting our community was launched and residents came together to prioritise issues and to decide how the City should respond. The Community Area Joint Strategic Assessment covers local issues across health and wellbeing, community safety, the economy, transport, the environment, housing, older people, children and young people and culture. It was produced by research teams in the NHS, Police, Fire and Rescue, the Council, the Local Economic Partnership, Wiltshire Wildlife and other agencies.  The assessment identifies issues by comparing areas in Wiltshire with the national picture and shows what has changed since 2014.

Watch the video above to see what has been achieved in the City in the two years since the last event – this is just a short summary some of the great things that have been delivered by local groups and partners.

Participants used their local knowledge to decide priorities and then voted using state of the art handsets.

Following the voting, participants discussed and agreed ideas and projects to address local challenges.  The full conference report will be available on the dedicated website (link below) and will be considered by Salisbury Area Board early in the new year.  Regular progress will be reported here.
