I paid for a parking time limit reminder and did not receive this from Wiltshire council, I challenged the PCN for this and was still dismissed because Wiltshire council will take your money and then still charge you more even when it is …

These scumbags have hassled us through debt agencies repeatedly for a debt that’s already being paid off. Although apparently not quick enough for them as, although it’s being paid by my partner they still feel the need to hire the …

Devastatingly bad service from a council that bleeds you for council tax yet is determined not to answer the phone. Other nonsense like calls not being taken until after 11.00am etc.

This is in no way a reflection on the hundreds of hard working council staff who do a great job in very difficult circumstances for which I thank you. This is levelled at the higher levels of management and councillors. There is no …

My bus pass expired at the end of June and I assumed that it would be automatically renewed as nothing had changed. However,, I was told that I had to reapply. I applied on 8th June and have tried ringing customer services several times but nobody answers. I have now been told it may take up to 5 weeks!

Went to pop to pick up my sunglasses up in Salisbury got a ticket for using the loading bay as the parking spaces were coned off and it was pouring down. Never ever going to spend a single penny in Salisbury again.
But the council have made £35 so quids in for them.

Made no allowance when I sold my flat, I am not a 2nd home owner/investor, yet have to pay full council tax while my flat is being sold, barely paying the bills and living in rented house in Dorset so not using any services in Wiltshire, literally money for nothing.

For me they been very helpful to replace a old garden waste bin into a new garden waste bin. Friendly on the phone and understanding. Everything takes time and patience. You even get calls back and they do short out flytip very well. Other then that a good weekend !

No to the Incinerator in Westbury! This Council has a total disregard for the objections of 18 town/parish councils and over 2000 people. The proposed siting of this incinerator right next to a dairy and in a residential area is ludicrous. I understand the site was not even visited before 7 Councillors voted it through.

Reported a blocked drain. (17 October 2016)
Quite a long wait in two phone queues, always irritating but it’s a feature of life these days. Call handlers were polite enough when they eventually replied.
Now let’s see how we get on with sorting out the blockage. I’ll be back to let you know !

Despite huge local opposition and overwhelming reasons against, this Council has approved the building of a massive Chicken Factory at Sutton Veny. Rather than represent local people this Council is supporting the interests of a multi-million pound company based in Birmingham. Funny that. Utterly despicable.
