Wiltshire Council – Change to Opening Hours

Opening hours for calls to Wiltshire Council and its reception desks have changed from today (Monday 7 August) to ensure calls can be answered more efficiently and to direct more resources to the busiest times.

Wiltshire Council’s reception desk opening hours and customer service calls are from 8:30am – 5:30pm to 9am – 5pm.

The 30 minute slots at the start and end of the day are the quieter times and staff will use those times to respond to emails, social media queries and for back office administrative duties. Entrance to the hubs will remain at 8:30am to 5:30pm for those wishing to use the hub facilities.

The changes will free up more time to deal with calls and face to face interactions during the busier times of the day and come as more Wiltshire residents opt to contact the council or find out information 24 hours a day via social media, emails and the My Wiltshire system.

Philip Whitehead, cabinet member for operational assets said:  “The way people contact and interact with the council is changing and through social media, the website and My Wiltshire system residents can contact us or find out information any time of day or night.  These changes will mean our resources are available at the busiest times so we can answer people’s queries quickly and efficiently. The 30 minutes either side of the day will be used for administration duties so all hands will be on deck during the busiest times.”

Some services will be unaffected by the changes including libraries, leisure, registration, health and wellbeing centres and community campuses and the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH). Details of their opening times are on the Wiltshire Council website http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/

All calls outside of the core hours will be dealt with by the usual out of hours emergency system.

Also people can use the My Wiltshire service any time of day to report a range of issues including missed bin collection, highways, grass cutting, litter picking, fraud and trading standards. People can also let the council know of changes affecting their benefits and council tax on the app. The app has proven popular with more than 50,000 registered users.

Those who wish to report concerns online can go to http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/mywiltshire-online-reporting

Police have received reports of a group of individuals approaching members of the public in the Devizes area using forceful and intimidating behaviour to try and pressure them into buying generators.

Pressurising behaviour includes placing a generator into a member of the public’s boot while they are loading their shopping. Please look out for vulnerable or elderly people in our community if you believe they are being approach or intimidated by this group.

The individuals have been spotted in Devizes at locations including Morrisons supermarket carpark and London Road petrol station but they are believed to have headed out of town towards Amesbury.

The group are believed to speak in Irish accents and be in several vans.

If you are approached by this group, do not purchase anything from them as we do not know the origin of the generators, politely decline and inform them you will be contacting police on 101. Trading standards have also been informed.

When calling 101 please quote log 0107 of today with any information such as locations, descriptions or number plates. Continue reading Beware Of Suspicious Group Operating In Area 07/06/2017

Armed Police in Wiltshire

Katrina Fleet (Police, Communications Officer, Wiltshire)


In response to the recent change in the threat level to critical, armed officers from Wiltshire Police will be seen out and about in our communities, primarily in Swindon and Salisbury but not limited to those areas.

We do stress that this is not based on any change in intelligence or threat for those areas, the county or the South West, but the decision has been taken instead to make firearms officers more deployable and visible to our communities. We think this is what the public would expect at this time.

Our priority is to provide as much reassurance to communities as possible but we do recognise that some may feel anxious. The firearms officers will be engaging and talking with people and we would actively encourage you to approach the officers and ask any questions they may have.

We advise the public to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious behaviour or activity on 0800 789 321 or in an emergency the public should always call 999.  Continue reading Armed Police in Wiltshire
