Stonehenge: have your say
Salisbury district council is urging people to comment on the Stonehenge visitor centre planning application before the public consultation comes to an end next October 27th. Already, more than 250 people have written to the council with their views on English Heritage's plans.
On top of that, a week-long exhibition held at Amesbury library, where people could view a model of the proposed visitor centre and ask Salisbury district council's case officer, David Milton, questions about the scheme, attracted about 350 residents. The scheme from English Heritage, plans for a single-storey visitor centre alongside Countess Road in Amesbury, is one of the biggest and most eagerly awaited planning applications ever submitted to Salisbury district council.
It is proposed a land train will take people across the World Heritage site to a point near the monument. Visitors will then walk to the stones (facilities will be provided for disabled people and the elderly). The model of the proposed visitor centre can be viewed at the council offices in Bourne Hill. Copies of the application are also available for inspection at Bourne Hill, the planning office in Wyndham Road and Amesbury library. Alternatively, plans can be viewed on the council's dedicated Stonehenge pages at www.salisbury.gov.uk.
