The Maltings to be Reopened

22nd May 2018

The Maltings site has been handed back to the recovery coordinating group by Defra and preparations to reopen The Maltings walkway and the businesses affected are now under way.

Remediation works to the public open space will be carried out over the next few days and the businesses that have been closed since the attack will be able to access their premises to restock prior to reopening to the public.

Business leaders in Salisbury are working to bring shoppers back to The Maltings following following the announcement.

With preparations under way to reinstate the public walkway and a number of premises affected by the recent incident, Salisbury Business Improvement District (BID) is aiming to help add vibrancy and footfall once again.

The BID is working closely with local partners including The Maltings’ management team and has already situated a number of pop-up market chalets along the riverside walk which are available for traders.

At the same time, BID City Rangers have spruced up the area with colourful hanging baskets and bunting to add to the pleasant look and feel. Robin McGowan, BID Chief Executive, said: “The reopening of The Maltings is fantastic news for Salisbury and a giant step forward in helping our city regain momentum after the incident.

“We will be working closely with the businesses which have been shut to help them in any way we can.

“The attractive wooden chalets, which will be familiar to anyone who has visited our Christmas Market over the years, are ready and any traders interested in making use of them should contact Paul Lacey on”
