Latest information and advice

We are experiencing issues with some payments. We are working with our provider to resolve this.


Somerset Council is committed to maintaining a clean and safe environment for the benefit of everyone in Somerset promoting fairness, economic growth and community safety.

This commitment recognises our responsibility to keep the streets and local environment safe and clear of litter obstructions and deal with other local environmental quality issues. The presence of dumped waste, litter, dog fouling, graffiti and other environmental crime detracts from the image of the area. This can have an adverse impact on inward investment as well as being a potential health and safety issue and contributing to perceptions and fear of crime.

Use of Body Worn Cameras

Somerset Council staff that are authorised to use Body Worn Cameras have the potential to improve the quality of evidence provided by officers carrying out enforcement duties within the Somerset Council area, and therefore increase the proportion of offences brought to justice.
