Wiltshire Council is planning to approve a 2.99% rise in council tax for 2019/20, for a growth in its services has been discussed by its cabinet.

A budget review by the overview and scrutiny committee, endorsed by the cabinet on February 5, will go to full council on February 26 when members will also be asked to approve the rise.

The council claims the budget reflects increasing demand for care for the vulnerable, including adults and children with complex care needs and special educational needs, and the delay in the Government determining a new, fairer funding settlement.

The budget includes proposals to continue to develop the recently transformed adult social care services to respond to increased demand, continued devolution of assets and services to local communities and creating a new local plan for effective and strategic planning to ensure homes, jobs and infrastructure needs of Wiltshire communities can be met.

Growth of £1.064 million is been included alongside new funding allocated from Government.
