The River Park project is designed to reduce the flood risk within Salisbury while enhancing habitats and public enjoyment, improving fish passage, reducing future liabilities and encouraging growth and regeneration.

There will also be a presentation led by Wiltshire Council about the Fisherton Gateway scheme and the improvement works.

This scheme aims to rejuvenate the area between Salisbury Railway Station and Fisherton Street to create a more welcoming and appealing entrance into the city.
