Area Boards return after summer break
Wiltshire's community area boards are set to return following the summer.
Each of the 18 community areas in the county has its own area board a forum for bringing decision making to local communities, and giving residents the opportunity to play a part in dealing with local issues that affect them directly from road repairs, traffic problems and speeding in villages, to how we deal with litter, facilities for young people and affordable housing.
Those 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.
The area boards return from 7 September. For more information about times and locations for your local area board, visit the website at http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/council/areaboards.htm
