Councillors representing their communities on town and parish councils will serve a five-year term, bringing these elections into line with county elections going forward.

The full list of people elected for the 110 County Council seats - two in each of the 55 divisions - can be found on the Somerset County Council  Elections page.

For their first year, the elected councillors will take responsibility for all current County Council services and oversee the local government reorganisation to establish a single unitary council on 1 April 2023. 

From 1 April 2023, the 110 councillors of the unitary council will be responsible for services that are currently delivered by the county and four district councils, ranging from adults and children’s social care to highways and housing, and from libraries to planning and licensing. 

District councils will remain until 31 March 2023 and the councillors serving on them will continue in their roles until that date.
