There are lots of ways to speak up about decisions the council is making in your area
We are committed to the delivery of quality services and want you to be able to have your say on any issues which affect you.
Read consultations and tell us what you think
Public consultations are an important part of our development as your local authority. They provide us with necessary feedback on proposals for change or other new initiatives, helping us in the decision-making process.
Go to our consultations page to see the consultations that affect your area.
Talk to your councillor
Councillors are voted for by local people. They are responsible for making decisions on behalf of the community about local services, like rubbish collection and leisure facilities, and agreeing budgets and Council Tax charges.
'Our Community Matters'
Talk to one another online
The 'Our Community Matters' sites have been set up to provide people with local interactive notice boards which everyone can use to highlight and discuss local news events and ideas.
Submit new petitions or participate in existing petitions
The council welcomes all petitions from anyone who lives, works or studies in Wiltshire or who uses the services provided by the council. We recognise that petitions are one way in which people can let us know their concerns, and are committed to responding to petitions.
Get involved with an area board
Area boards will give you the power to influence what Wiltshire Council does in your community area, and can help to make sure that decisions about local issues are made locally.
You can sign up now to your area board's community area network or report an issue in your community area
