Census 2021

The census is coming! By taking part, you can help inform decisions on services that shape your community, such as healthcare, education and transport.

The census is a unique survey that happens every 10 years. It gives us a snapshot of all the people and households in England and Wales – the most detailed information we have about our society.

It’s important that you fill in your census questionnaire. Without the information you share, it’d be more difficult to understand your community’s needs and to plan and fund public services.

In one way or another, your information touches the lives of every single person living in England and Wales, whether it’s through using census information to plan new schools, doctors’ surgeries or bike lanes.

Because these things matter to us all, everyone needs to complete the census. Do not worry, government officials dealing with applications you’ve made or payments or services you receive cannot see it.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) runs the census in England and Wales and is independent from government. Your details are protected by law and information published is always anonymous.

Census Day is Sunday 21 March 2021. You can fill yours in online as soon as you get your access code in the post. If your household circumstances change on Census Day, you can let the ONS know.

Everyone should have the support they need to fill in the census. If you, or anyone you know, needs help, there’s a wide range of support services available.

These include a contact centre that can give you help over the phone and guidance in a range of languages and accessible formats, including paper questionnaires and large print.

Public consultation on the Salisbury River Park Masterplan

Notice of public consultation on the Salisbury River Park Masterplan and draft proposals for Phase 1 of the River Park project

Wiltshire Council and the Environment Agency are working in partnership to deliver a flood alleviation, environmental and public realm improvement project in central Salisbury which will reduce flood risk, enhance biodiversity, enrich public enjoyment of the rivers and build climate change resilience. We are inviting you to view and comment on these proposals.

The consultation starts at 9:00am Thursday 19th November 2020 and ends at 5:00pm Friday 8th January 2021

This consultation is split into two sections:

Section 1: Salisbury River Park Masterplan

 

Section 1 asks for your feedback on the draft Salisbury River Park Masterplan, which sets the guiding principles for the whole of the River Park area.  The River Park will create a lasting legacy of riverside green space and urban wildlife habitat for the people of Salisbury and its visitors to enjoy well into the future. The River Park area will better connect the linear riverside route from the Ashley Road Open Space towards Elizabeth Gardens, north to south through the centre of Salisbury along the margins of the River Avon. It will enhance the setting and quality of the river while delivering essential flood risk mitigation to protect existing and future residents and businesses, building resilience to the effects of climate change. The Masterplan for the River Park sets out the guiding principles of how the project will be delivered in phases, with the latter phases dependent on securing funding.

 

Section 2: Detailed plans for Phase 1 of the Salisbury River Park (Salisbury Central Car Park, Ashley Road Open Space and Fisherton Recreation Ground)

 

Section 2 asks for your feedback on the Environment Agency’s draft detailed proposals for Phase 1 of the River Park that will form part of a planning application next year. Phase 1 will provide critical flood risk alleviation infrastructure and environmental improvements in Salisbury’s central car park, the Ashley Road Open Space and Fisherton Recreation Ground. This part of the project is being led by the Environment Agency, with support from Wiltshire Council and Salisbury City Council. The Phase 1 project is to be part-funded by the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership via the Local Growth Fund.
