Council launches new virtual community notice board in Salisbury

People in Salisbury will be the first in the County to have the opportunity to talk about what matters to them through a new community blogsite.

Salisbury Our Community Matters is the first in a series of community blogsites being launched across Wiltshire throughout this year. You can visit the site and join the conversation at www.salisbury.ourcommunitymatters.org.uk

These sites will act like a virtual notice board that local communities can use to publicise events and have discussions.

Unlike more traditional websites, these blogsites will be fully interactive and local people will be able to post stories and have their say on what other people are talking about. They will also be a free channel for local organisations to publicise community events.

These blogsites are part of the council’s work with social media to find additional innovative ways to talk with local people about what matters to them. Social media is already being used across a range of council services to better engage with local people and provide them with relevant, instant and up to date information.

Conservative Councillor John Thomson, deputy council leader and cabinet member for local communities, said: “We are committed to working with people at a local level and helping them continue to create strong and vibrant communities. These blogsites will build and support the work we are already doing to help the 18 community areas to help themselves through area boards.”

Similar blogsites will be rolled out to the other 17 community areas by March 2013.
