The revitalisation brings a fresh new vibrancy to the region, with meeting spaces, public artworks, greenery and a range of new experiences for visitors, shoppers, diners, and workers alike whilst still maintaining its strong community identity. Improved lighting and landscaping will add to an inviting, renewed pedestrian environment.

Construction will be done in a staged approach to minimise any impacts to local businesses on either Church or John Streets.

The City of Salisbury continues to engage with these businesses throughout the project keeping them informed of the construction progress, provide advance notice of any works nearby and assist with any specific impacts.

Local traders have been very supportive of the revitalisation and eagerly await the completion of the revitalisation project in late 2022.

City of Salisbury Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM said the commencement of the construction process was an exciting and anticipated milestone for the project to enhance our City Centre.

It is exciting to see construction commence for the Church and John Street Revitalisation Project – this fantastic project will revitalise our City Centre and create a better experience for those visiting the area. It will be very exciting to watch this space evolve.

Council is committed to creating a sense of place which reflects Salisbury’s heart and identity and new meeting places will add to a sense of community connectivity.
