Police and Crime Council Tax Consultation

Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Wiltshire and Swindon Angus Macpherson is consulting on the police and crime element of council tax for 2014-15.

The Commissioner is considering an increase in the police and crime element of council tax of £3.15 a year for the average home (band D property). This is to help reduce the impact of significant central government grant reductions on policing and crime services in Wiltshire and Swindon.

An average increase of £3.15 per household would provide the Commissioner with an additional £740,000 of local income for 2014-15.

Looking ahead three years to 2016-17, a proposed increase of £3.15 a year would reduce the potential funding shortfall by £2.3 million, meaning that savings of £12.5 million would be required rather than £14.8 million. Since the start of the austerity period, savings of more than £10 million have already been made.

The current rate of policing and crime council tax for an average band D home in Wiltshire and Swindon is £157.77. This would increase to £160.92 under the proposal.

The council tax rate for policing and crime services in Wiltshire and Swindon has not increased for the past three years and it will still be the lowest in the south west.

The consultation runs from Monday 6 January to Monday 3 February 2014.

To read more information and submit your feedback, please go to the Commissioner’s website:

WfCAP’s Review

Below is a link to the recently published review of Wiltshire’s Community Area Partnerships. Community Area Partnerships (CAPs) have been integral to community engagement in Wiltshire for 10-15 years; growing and adapting to work through the transition of unitary authority and become a key player, operating alongside Area Boards, to inform of community needs and tackle local issues.

As the infrastructure support organisation for the CAPs WfCAP have complied this document below to give clarity to their role, raise profile of the support of community partnership working in the county. The report demonstrates CAPs significance in helping ensure that Wiltshire continues to be a county where needs are addressed, people have – and are able to recognise their – aspirations and communities become empowered and resilient.

This report collates information from CAPs working over the last 18 months, since April 2012.
