Community Governance Review for Taunton

Somerset West and Taunton Council is carrying out a review to decide on changes to existing local governance arrangements, including whether or not a new town or parish council or councils should be set up in those parts of Taunton where they don’t currently exist.

We want to hear from local residents, business owners and organisations that are within the area of scope of the review.

The Council will consider all feedback before making draft recommendations. These will then be subject to further consultation before final recommendations are published and considered by Councillors.

You can complete this questionnaire online from 17 November, or obtain a paper version and return it to Governance Team, Somerset West and Taunton Council, PO Box 866, Taunton, TA1 9GS or hand it in one of our offices.

Alternatively you can tell us your views by e-mailing:

The first stage consultation will close on Wednesday 12 January 2022.
