Have your say on the challenges ahead

We're hosting a series of interactive meetings to discuss the challenges the council is facing and the impact these could have on our communities.

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, prioritising 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 attend the meetings to discuss the challenges and invite and listen to your views and suggestions on how these can be best managed.

The first two meetings were held in Salisbury and Chippenham.

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.
