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


Consultations inform the decisions taken by the Council, the views of our community and partners help make the best decisions.

Consultation can:

  • provide invaluable information about improving services, plans and partnerships across Somerset West and Taunton
  • allow us to determine which priorities to focus our time and resources on
  • help to generate ideas, issues and solutions, and identify key people to be involved in the planning process

To reach as many people as possible we aim to consult using a variety of methods, including our website, surveys, focus groups, forums and public meetings.

The vision for our Garden Town

We hope this Vision for Taunton sparks debate and interest in our Garden Town. The Vision has been expressed in words, maps and illustrations. It is important that we agree a shared Vision for the Garden Town that can guide the actions of many other stakeholders, not just the council, and that can be championed and owned by the whole town. This Vision framework will influence all plan-making and development management decisions.

Please visit Taunton - The vision for our garden town to complete the on-line feedback survey.

The consultation period ends at 5:00 pm on Friday 26 April 2019.
