Giving power back to the people

What is an area board?

The area boards are a way of working to bring local decision making back into the heart of the community. They are a formal part of Wiltshire Council that try to find solutions for local issues such as road repairs, traffic problems and speeding in villages, litter, facilities for young people and affordable housing.

People who work with the 18 area boards include councillors, community area managers, democratic service officers together with one member of the council’s top decision making committee, the cabinet. It also includes the local NHS, fire and emergency services, police, town and parish councils, community area partnerships and many other groups.

By working in partnership with local communities, the council can achieve so much more than it ever could on its own. We hope this will lead to better services, better communities and a better quality of life for everyone in Wiltshire.

Area board health fairs

Your local Area Board invites you to its next meeting, which will focus on health care in Wiltshire and what this will mean to you. You are welcome to visit the health fair where personal health MOTs, advice and free passes to use for leisure activities will be on offer.
