Wiltshire Council freezes council tax for a third year

County councillors in Wiltshire have frozen council tax for the third year running.

At a meeting on Tuesday, councillors agreed to a budget of £330m for the coming year.

The Tory-run council, however, said it would be making £32m of savings by closing council offices, cutting posts and “working more efficiently”.

The Lib-Dem proposals to bring back one-hour free parking and free swimming for the over 60s were rejected.

The council’s component of the tax makes up 80% of what residents pay. The rest goes to the police, fire service and parish councils.
