Help the Council set its budget

Help the Council set its budget

I am pleased to invite you to attend one of a series of meetings Wiltshire Council will be hosting to outline its financial and service plans for 2015 and into the future.

The council currently spends around £900m each year on more than 350 services. The changing demographics, rising inflation and reduction in funding from central government has meant we have had to find substantial savings which will continue into next year’s budget and beyond. Cabinet will be in attendance at each of these events to discuss these challenges in more detail.

Our priority continues to support and assist those who are most vulnerable in our communities, as well as taking action to boost the local economy, safeguard and create jobs and to work with communities to help them to do more for themselves.

We would like to share our plans for next year and hear your views and suggestions. Details of the meetings are set out below where the format will be both informative and interactive.

I very much look forward to seeing you and hope that you will be able to join us. It would be extremely helpful if you could confirm your attendance by e-mailing: sharonl.smith@wiltshire.gov.uk.
