At the council meeting on 30th June 2020 the town council had an opportunity to discuss the proposal to disband the county council and the district councils in Somerset to create One Somerset. This proposal has been considered several times over the many years, but now is being led by the County Council who will be putting a business case together to outline their proposals, in due course. The council was asked for its initial comments and this is the response that they have submitted which can be found here. There will be further opportunities to consider the proposal once the business case is presented in the coming months

Further information on the One Somerset proposal can be found on its designated website where there are some very useful and insightful information – www.onesomerset.org.uk. There is also an opportunity for the public and businesses to comment on the proposals.
