Third-party still being sought to run Salisbury City Hall

POTENTIAL partners to run Salisbury City Hall as an entertainment venue are still being sought.

The process to find a third party to run the venue was launched by Wiltshire Council, which owns the building, earlier this year.

A Prior Information Notice (PIN) has been published, notifying the market and relevant organisations of the council’s intention to work with a third party.

The council says the process will allow it to better understand the possible level of interest among organisations to manage and operate City Hall on its behalf and is open until the end of November.

Alongside the PIN, a market engagement event has been held at City Hall, which gave the council an opportunity to talk with potential operators in more detail.

Cllr Richard Clewer, leader of Wiltshire Council, said: “I’m pleased we’ve reached this informative stage of the process as we look at the options to secure a third-party provider to work alongside, as ensuring we have the right expertise involved remains a key priority.

“The PIN process and recently held market engagement event will be important to help us decide the best direction to go in and ensure we are as informed as we possibly can be when making any decisions.

“We’re pleased to engage with potential operators and, with the amount of investment into Salisbury at the moment, we remain committed to reopening and delivering a thriving City Hall and see it as a key part of the city’s future.”
