Council leader estimates job losses will be 200

Four years ago it was predicted we would need to reduce by 1,200 posts. The current 200 posts will only take the total to 800, which is still less than we predicted. We will try to reduce the number of back office support rather than front line staff because our aim has always been to protect those vital services.”

– Cllr Jane Scott OBE, Conservative Leader of Wiltshire Council
