Public Participation


Ian Jewson (Agent) provided a statement in support of the application.


Lee Burman, Development Management Team Leader presented a report which recommended that permission be granted subject to the conditions set out in the original report to Committee and completion of a S106 Planning Obligation which had subsequently been agreed in draft form. With the dual recommendation that if the applicant failed to complete the planning obligation in the draft form as now agreed and within 3 months of the resolution, or an extended timeframe to be agreed with the Committee Chair and Vice chair if necessary, that the application be refused. (This was updated in agenda supplement 2 from the original officer recommendation to refuse the application.)


The proposal was for works to the existing road network to provide a new road link connecting B4069 Langley Road and Parsonage Way, including the provision of a footway/cycleway and new landscaping. Construction of new double roundabout junction on Langley Road and single roundabout on Parsonage Way. Stopping up of existing section of Parsonage Way.


The scheme sought to reorder the existing road layout in the locality and make use of the previously permitted and constructed internal haul road at the Wavin site as part of the local public road network. Two new road junctions at the western and eastern ends of the haul road/existing Parsonage Way were required to facilitate this, as were some minor improvements to the haul road as constructed. This would allow the existing Parsonage Way to be stopped up and it’s use changed to outdoor storage thereby creating a single, undivided site for Wavin facilitating improved site management and operation.


At the meeting of the Strategic Planning Committee on 15 August 2018 the committee resolved to approve this application subject to the signing of a Section 106 agreement, or to refuse the application in the event that the agreement was not completed, this was in accordance with the officer recommendation. The committee report and minutes from that meeting were contained in the agenda pack.


Several disputes had arisen since the resolution on 15 August 2018 and material considerations had arisen which meant that the wording to the refusal reason previously reported and agreed needed to be updated.


However, since publication of the agenda report talks with the applicant and their representatives had continued and the matters of dispute had been satisfactorily resolved. Therefore, the officer had changed the recommendation from refusal (as detailed in the agenda) to granting permission with conditions and completion of the S106 planning obligation based on the wording now agreed between the parties (as detailed in agenda supplement 2).


Members of the public then had the opportunity to present their views as detailed above.


In response to public statements the officer stated that the Council had clarified that the agreement did not seek to override any disputed land interests and that it was purely about physical delivery of the scheme. A position had been reached where both parties were satisfied.

Salisbury Central Area Framework

Supporting documents:


The Committee received a presentation from David Milton, Major Projects and Spatial Planning Manager on the Salisbury Central Area Framework.


The Central Area Framework (CAF) was initially in response to the Novichok incident in Salisbury in 2018. The report would update the committee on the outcome of the recovery process and subsequent consultations which helped to shape the CAF. The CAF was designed to be more rigorous, realistic and pragmatic than previous Salisbury visions and based on more credible economic testing of scenarios.


Covid had accelerated trends that the CAF had identified, for example the shift to online shopping, therefore the need to improve the offer of town centres was clear, to make a visit to the town centre a unique visitor experience. Key themes were identified as:


·       Creating people friendly streets

·       Improving open space and the environment

·       Creating vibrancy

·       Bringing out the qualities

·       Identifying character areas and their roles in the city


Two stages of very robust public consultation had been undertaken in 2019 and 2020 as detailed in the report. A future highstreets bid was in to revamp the station approach. Match funding had been obtained from the LEP. Many costed strategies were in place and were ready to roll out when funding could be identified and obtained. The document had been produced in accordance with Wiltshire Council land use planning protocols. It was hoped the committee would endorse the document.


In response to councillors technical questions it was stated that it was a fairly common practise for Wiltshire Council to produce such master plans and recommend that they are endorsed and taken account of as a material consideration when considering planning applications, for example the document produced regarding housing for Army rebasing and the plan for the central Maltings. It was hoped that elements could be added to any new local plan so that there would be more weight behind the plans and policies. Regarding the lower public support for centralising car parking and increasing park and ride it was felt this was often due to residents using the car parks overnight, so rigorous consultation would be needed and alternatives provided.


No members of the public had registered to speak.


Cllr Brian Dalton, representative of Salisbury Harnham was given the opportunity to speak, stating that this had been consulted on at Salisbury Area Board on several occasions. Cllr Dalton wished to advise the committee regarding the people friendly streets scheme that was soon to be introduced in Salisbury. The scheme had been amended by Wiltshire Council as a result of public feedback. Cllr Dalton was concerned regarding the timing of this as schools would be going back, major roadworks were to be completed on the A338 and the new scheme implemented. He felt that public opinion on this project was split.


In response the officer stated that the scheme soon to be implemented in Salisbury was completely separate to the CAF. That was in response to government funding provided to respond to the Covid crisis.
