Connecting our Garden Communities

Somerset West and Taunton Council is seeking views from the public, local communities, technical stakeholders and the development industry on Connecting our Garden Communities – a plan for ensuring high quality walking and cycling infrastructure accompanies the delivery of key developments across Taunton Garden Town.

Wide engagement and participation is an important part of developing an effective plan, and community buy-in will be integral to successful scheme delivery. Therefore we want to know what you think.

To view and comment directly on an interactive map, respond to survey questions and review all of the supporting material visit the Taunton Garden Town consultation portal.

The consultation runs from 29 July 2022 until 30 September 2022.
