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.
