Chairman's Announcements

·         New Fly-Tipping Campaign – We’re Targeting Fly Tippers

The new We're Targeting Fly-tippers (WTF) campaign aims to combat the scourge of fly-tipping by offering residents a reward of up to £200 in high street vouchers if they report information that leads to the successful prosecution of an offender or the payment of a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN). Email peter.white@wiltshire.gov.uk with as many details as possible to report fly-tipping.

·         British Telecom Proposed Payphones Removal Consultation

The council has received notification from BT regarding consultation on its current programme of proposed public payphone removals. BT propose to remove payphones with low usage levels following a full consultation. Wiltshire Council will also carry out a consultation. Responses received by 14 January 2020 will be included in our return to BT. Please see the agenda report for full details and email Mary Moore, Economic Development and Planning, on mary.moore@wiltshire.gov.uk  to comment.

·         Wiltshire Green Pledge

Earlier this year Wiltshire Council pledged to be carbon neutral by 2030, and its councillors have agreed to seek to make the county of Wiltshire carbon neutral by 2030.

To help with this, The Green Pledge has been launched which is asking people to commit to making small changes that can have a big positive impact on the environment.
