North Wiltshire District Council
Leadership: Leader & Cabinet Executive: MPs: James Gray (North Wiltshire)
North Wiltshire was a local government district in Wiltshire, England, formed on 1 April 1974, by a merger of the municipal boroughs of Calne, Chippenham, and Malmesbury along with Calne and Chippenham Rural District, Cricklade and Wootton Bassett Rural District and Malmesbury Rural District. It shared its name with the North Wiltshire parliamentary constituency, which had similar, but not identical, boundaries.
The district council was based at Monkton Park, Chippenham.
The district was abolished on 1 April 2009 as part of the 2009 structural changes to local government in England, when its functions were taken over by the new Wiltshire Council unitary authority.
