The Focusing on the Future public meetings will be spread across four dates in four locations around Wiltshire in November.

The discussion will include:

  • Decision making how the council allocates your tax to offer services
  • Diligence how it spends wisely to balance the budget
  • Difference how it's changing
  • Digital how the council is making it easier for you to book, pay and do on line when you want to
  • Devolution how parish and town councils and communities can provide more services locally

Cllr Whitehead said: "It would be good to have a high turn-out of local people attending these meetings as it's really important that we hear the views of our residents and tax payers. We also welcome their questions and look forward to discussing the future plans that the council is putting in place to make sure that it can continue to delivery vital front line services."
