2016/17 budget proposals

Details of Wiltshire Council's budget proposals for 2016/17 are available.

We currently spend approximately £900 million each year on more than 350 services.

Funding from central government is reducing while there is an increase in demand for some of our frontline services. Over the last four years we have needed to save £110m.

The budget papers set out how we plan to meet the challenges for 2016/17 while delivering on our three main priorities:

  • Protecting those who are most vulnerable in our communities.
  • Boosting the local economy creating new jobs and safeguarding existing ones.
  • Supporting local communities to do more for themselves making them stronger, more resilient and more able to cope.

The budget will be discussed and agreed at a full council meeting on 23 February 2016.
