Helping Wiltshire Council meet the challenges ahead

Invitation to voice your views at interactive public meetings

Wiltshire Council is hosting a series of interactive meetings to discuss the challenges that the council is facing and the impact that these could have.

The council currently spends £900 million each year on more than 300 services and has recently agreed a plan to deliver an ambitious programme of work over the next 10 years.

The council’s vision is to create strong communities, prioritizing growing the economy, protecting those who are most vulnerable, and working with partners in an innovative and effective way.

Changing demographics and the continuing reduction in funding from central government mean we have to continue to find substantial savings and work even more closely with local communities to encourage and support them to do more for themselves.

The council’s cabinet members will be attending the meetings to discuss the challenges and to invite and listen to your views and suggestions on how these can be best managed.

We hope you are able to attend one of the meetings below and it would be helpful if you could please confirm your attendance by emailing: events@wiltshire.gov.uk

14 September, Monkton Park, Chippenham, 5.30pm (Refreshments available)

25 September, County Hall, Trowbridge, 5.30pm
(Refreshments available)

26 September, Corn Exchange, Devizes, 5.30pm
