A major consultation exercise is due to get under way in Salisbury giving city residents a say on how parks are managed and enhanced for the future.

Starting on 6 May, Victoria Park will be the first to be put under the spotlight by the district council's parks team.

Feedback will be used to draw up the first of a number of individual management plans for the city's parks.

Plans for all major parks are expected to be completed within a year.

As well as Victoria Park, the council's parks team plans to review the following sites: Churchill Gardens, Queen Elizabeth Gardens, Hudson's Field, Harnham Recreation ground, city play areas, allotments and Bourne Hill.

"From 6 May our staff will be in Victoria Park asking local people to participate in a questionnaire. That questionnaire will also be available on our website until the end of May," said Salisbury District Parks Manager, Reg Williams.

"Residents living close to the park will also be sent the questionnaire and we will also be targeting people who either use the park regularly or have a specific interest in it."
