Business plan

Wiltshire is a thriving county with a rich and diverse heritage. We are home to half a million people with around half of the population living in towns and villages with fewer than 10,000 residents. This plan recognises that we cannot achieve everything in isolation; we need to work ever more closely with our partners and stakeholders.

Our strong and cohesive communities continue to be some of our proudest achievements. The way we look out for each other and handle the challenges we have faced together is what makes our beautiful county the best place to live, work and raise a family

Our vision is to create stronger communities in Wiltshire

This business plan sets out our priorities and how we will deliver them working closely with local communities and partners; as well as investing in technology to make it easier for residents and businesses to engage with us and resolve matters more quickly.

As a council, we know our mission is to ensure:

  • The people of Wiltshire are empowered to live full, healthy and enriched lives.
  • Our communities continue to be beautiful and exciting places to live.
  • Our local economy thrives and is supported by a skilled workforce.
  • We lead the way in how councils and counties mitigate the climate challenges ahead.

Our guiding themes are:

  • Prevention and early intervention
  • Improving social mobility and tackling inequalities
  • Understanding communities
  • Working together

These are set out with more detail in the introduction to the Business Plan.

The Business Plan was approved by Full Council on 15 February 2022.
