The Spring Bank Holiday on Monday 27 May means recycling and waste collections will be one day later during that week.

Previous election results

Voters will go to the polls on May 2 to elect the first Somerset West and Taunton Council members.

The new council has been created from two previous authorities: Taunton Deane Borough Council and West Somerset Council.

This means that previous district election results are for those two former councils.
