The Maltings

The relocation of Salisbury library to Fisherton Street, or close by, has been an agreed local policy for at least 12 years, and has been supported by the Civic Society, as a sensible accompaniment to redevelopment of the Maltings. It enables the re-use of the existing library area as a new entrance to that part of the city, with a much more creative use of the three arches to the old Market House façade, which will be retained. The picture has been clouded by the current piecemeal approach to Maltings redevelopment, with no overall scheme yet in place, and no timetable indicating how development on the edge of the site will proceed into the core of it.  Go to Current Issues: The Maltings for more detailed coverage.
