About The Deal

The Deal is an informal agreement between the council and everyone who lives or works here to work together to create a better borough.

We have committed to a series of pledges and in return need residents and businesses to play their part too.

Together we have saved around £100m, but there’s still a long way to go. We believe we can continue to keep Council Tax bills down but still balance our books if you help by doing things like recycling more, volunteering in your communities and using online services.

Now in its second year, The Deal, has already been a success thanks to the hard work and commitment of residents and communities, but we all must keep doing more.

Details of what the council will do and what we want residents to do as part of The Deal

The Deal in Action programme is a great example of how communities are coming together to make The Deal work.

It’s crucial that businesses also play their part. We have developed a new approach to increase inward investment and business success - we hope to help to create a ‘working’ borough. Find out more about Wigan Works.
