Maltings car park in Salisbury to close temporarily

Wiltshire Council will be implementing temporary closures across the Maltings car park in Salisbury during October and November for essential electrical works to take place.

To reduce disruption, the works will be done in stages so that there is still ample parking available for users. Signage and coning will be in place to direct users to the alternative available parking.

The first closure, from 13th-14th October, will see the whole underground car park beneath Sainsbury’s closed, then on 20-21 October, the underground section behind the City Hall will be closed.

3rd November will see the closure of the left-hand side of the underground section from the entrance up to (and including) the Shop Mobility car park, and finally, on 4th-5th November the rear underground section, and Shopmobility parking will be closed.

Cllr Dr Mark McClelland, Wiltshire Council Cabinet Member for Cabinet Member for Transport, Waste, Street Scene and Flooding, said, “These closures are required to complete essential electrical works, but we hope to keep disruption to a minimum by still providing parking alternatives.

“I would like to take the opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience that it may cause, but we will ensure that appropriate signage and cones will be in place to make it clear to the public which areas are open for use“.
