Wiltshire Conservatives running down the council

The WC administration is trying to save money by cutting staff numbers. The council is already significantly under-performing in areas such as planning due to staff shortages.

Now more officers are being threatened with the chop, as WC says it needs to "Deliver staff savings of £10m over the next two years with approx. 70% being delivered next year."

Vacant budgeted posts which are described as "not business critical" will be deleted, recruitment to some vacancies will be delayed, and organisational structures will yet again be reviewed to find more posts to axe.

Discussions are to take place with trade unions about the Tory proposals.
