Wiltshire Association of Local Councils (WALC) supports and advises parish, town and city councils in Wiltshire and Swindon as they in turn support the communities in which they serve. Local Councils, as the first tier of local government, are in a position where they can really make things happen and make a difference in their communities.
WALC endeavours to support and encourage Local Councils by offering guidance, advice and training to councils in membership. Deborah Bourne is County Secretary to Wiltshire Association of Local Councils.
Wiltshire Association of Local Councils has an Executive Committee made up of councillors from across Wiltshire and Swindon. WALC has membership on a variety of regional and local partnerships making sure the voice of local councils is heard, bringing the relevant issues to the fore whenever necessary. WALC has successfully lobbied Government in the past on issues important and central to parish and town councils in Wiltshire and enjoys representation on the NALC National Council and its various committees, offering a local voice at a national level.
