Salisbury Civic Society’s aims include celebrating the heritage, enhancing the built environment, and shaping the future of our area and the Annual Open Meeting run by the Society is one of many activities through which it seeks to achieve these aims. The Open Meetings, held every year since 1997, are designed to draw attention to a topic which could bring benefits to city and district, and are open to all free of charge. This year’s Annual Open Meeting will be on “Reclaiming the Vision for Salisbury and South Wiltshire” and will focus on new possibilities and approaches to the future of Salisbury and South Wiltshire, following the demise of the formal Salisbury Vision exercise. We have five exceptional speakers at the meeting and opportunities for questions and debate with: John Glen MP as our keynote speaker on the work of the South Wiltshire Economic Task Group, and how this relates to the former Salisbury Vision, the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership, and other relevant bodies which are taking a strategic development role in South Wiltshire.
Judy Rose from Devizes Town Council and Chris Callow from Roundway Parish Council on how visionary ideas, together with the views of the local community, were fed into the process of developing Devizes’s recently completed Neighbourhood Plan.
Nicola Lipscombe Chair of Salisbury Area Greenspace Partnership, on the partnership’s vision for the Salisbury area.
Peter Horwood on Salisbury Transition City’s vision for the area.
Admission & Drinks: free of charge, all are welcome
