Following the recent transfer of assets from Wiltshire Council to Salisbury City Council, a new cleaning and weeding regime has been implemented by Salisbury City Council in advance of the formal exchange of street cleansing to bring the City up to a good standard.
The project will be part of a “Love Salisbury” initiative the Council is running to continuously improve local facilities, services and cleanliness. The first two phases are weeding across the City and the street cleansing. In addition to this, the City Council is working in partnership with the BID and Wiltshire Council to replace the bins across the City Centre.
Leader of Salisbury City Council Cllr Andrew Roberts said, “We have listened to our residents who had concerns about what the City looked like, we hope this will begin to address those concerns and improve the appearance for both our residents and visitors.”
Street cleaning will be implemented by id verde on behalf of Salisbury City Council. A pavement sweeper and a pavement cleanser will be out five days a week to begin with and have already made a remarkable difference to the Market Place and Guildhall square.
The weeding is being managed by Bawden in 4 phases which start with the City Centre and will finally address weed issues on the approach roads with our partners Highways England and Wiltshire Council.
