Garden Town status for Taunton represents a once in a generation opportunity to improve the lives of our community.
The Council has recently declared a climate emergency and we are passionate about making Somerset West and Taunton carbon neutral by 2030. This aim underpins the vision and themes in the Vision for Taunton as a Garden Town document, and will influence projects and initiatives as these are developed and rolled out.
