...this January.

Residents are being invited to join Wiltshire Council leaders this month to discuss the services that the council provides and its plans for future years.

The Focussing on the Future public meetings will be spread across four dates in locations around Wiltshire this January.

The Trowbridge meeting will be on the 15th January at County Hall between 5.30 and 7.00.

The meetings will be an opportunity to focus on how the council is changing to provide the services that taxpayers expect and need both now and in the years ahead.

Since 2017/18, the council has saved around £67 million by working more efficiently and prioritising services but it estimates a further £15 million must be saved next year. Demand for services continues to grow, especially in social care, at a higher rate than the current budget. This means strong financial planning is vital, as well as a programme of transformation, digitisation and commercialisation.

Wiltshire Council has also pledged to be carbon neutral by 2030 and its councillors have agreed to seek to make the county of Wiltshire carbon neutral by 2030.
