The web’s best guide to Salisbury: shopping, business, eating & drinking, what’s on, what’s to see and where to stay - provided by Salisbury City Centre Management
Salisbury City Centre Management was formed in 1998 and among its founding members
were Boots, Sainsbury's and Marks & Spencer together with a host of small independent
businesses. Ian Newman, of I. N. Newman Funeral Directors was, and remains, the partnership's
Ian is supported by a small yet effective team as well as a Board of Directors who
are local business men and women who have a connection with the City and care strongly
for its economic viability and success.
The partnership also employs a City Centre Manager, Lindsey Brown (Wed - Frid) and
Graham Gould (Mon - Tue) and a Marketing Manager, Chris Litherland.
Our membership has increased by approximately 50% over the last three years as the
partnership goes from strength to strength. We have around 250 members split between

What does Salisbury City Centre Management do?
Salisbury City Centre Management works to protect its members interests and to help
them improve the profitability of their business. We are involved in the key strategic
issues such as the Salisbury Vision and the local transport plan.
But we are also actively engaged in other important areas such as the provision of
parking spaces, the cost of parking, the condition of the city's roads, pavements
and other public spaces, recycling and business rates.
Arguably some of our most important work is the work we do 'behind the scenes', lobbying,
chasing and generally keeping Wiltshire Council and others aware of Salisbury and
of the importance of its business community.
All of this activity is aimed at improving the business environment in Salisbury
and thus about encouraging more people to spend more money in the city's businesses.
We support the city's business community by working to ensure that Salisbury builds
on and expands upon its position as a sub regional centre for retail, business, culture
We try to achieve this by encouraging and facilitating sensitive and sustainable
development aimed at making Salisbury a vital, vibrant and attractive city that is
safe and welcoming. We believe that we need to make it easier for more people to
visit Salisbury, be it for a day or longer.
