Clean-Up Work in Salisbury Has Begun

17th April 2018

Salisbury BID has welcomed Wiltshire Council's announcement of the start of the clean-up operation of the nine sites in the city following the major incident on 4th March 2018.

The specialist cleaning programme is headed by Defra in partnership with Wiltshire Council.

Salisbury BID's Chief Executive, Robin McGowan, said: “I welcome the news of the clean-up operation as the latest stage in ongoing efforts to rejuvenate our beautiful city for businesses, residents and visitors.

“There will undoubtedly be some inconvenience to businesses while this vital work is carried out behind hoardings and we are reassured it will be done as quickly, safely and thoroughly as possible.

We are continuing to work with other business organisations in the city to help and advise businesses affected by the incident.

“Rest assured that we are working hard with key stakeholders on strategic initiatives to aid the recovery of our vibrant city once the clean-up process is complete.

“I must also emphasise that Salisbury is very much open for business and that Public Health England has reaffirmed that outside the cordoned areas the city is safe for residents and visitors.”
