Wilton’s tax precept for a Band D property will rise by only £9.15 a year or 76p a month for 2019/2020.
The town council has launched a Wilton neighbourhood plan, and is supporting a bigger and better history festival, new play facilities, an eco-town project, electric car charging stations in South Street Car Park, new cycle stands and increased support for volunteering.
Mayor of Wilton, Councillor Peter Edge said: “We took a long, hard look at our income and expenditure, made some efficiencies and released cash for projects that will have a big impact.”
Town Clerk Steve Milton said: “We faced some challenges this year; the additional revenue from the new houses at Wilton Hill did not come through as we were hoping. We have found savings, increased our reserves and committed to a really exciting programme.”
Funding was also agreed for a new handy person to tackle jobs around the Town and cash to boost Wilton in Bloom.
